About me:  My favorite Honors College professor is Dr. Sciolino. She is fantastic! She is so intelligent and enthusiastic about English and her students. She really encouraged me to research my topic thoroughly and dive into my research! She takes a new approach towards research papers, and is a professor I will never forget.

I wanted to serve as an Honors College Ambassador because the Honors College here is unlike any other I visited my senior year. I love the small classes and the professors' willingness to help. I want to be a representative and server to current and prospective students on all that the Honors College has to offer its students.

My future goals at Southern Miss are to continue pursuing leadership positions, work with the children of the DuBard School, and continue to get involved and make the most of my remaining years here. I would love to study abroad to either Spain or Costa Rica one summer as well. I want to leave the university better than I found it. Overall, I look forward to all the exciting opportunities awaiting me at the university.
