How did you learn about ASU?
I learned about ASU because of the Volleyball program. I knew it was the perfect distance from home (about 3 hours).
Why did you want to attend ASU?
I wanted to attend ASU because of the sense of community it creates. I knew this was a place I could be successful and grow in athletics, the classroom, and my personal life.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is all of the connections I have made not only with fellow students, but with my professors and the community of San Angelo as well.
What are some of your hobbies?
I spend my free time reading and hanging out outside and with my dog. I love doing anything athletic, but especially playing volleyball.
Are you involved in any student organizations?
I am a captain of the ASU Belle Volleyball team, so that takes up a lot of my time. Other than playing and practicing, we do a lot of community service.
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
I do not work on campus. I have been doing practicums and will be student teaching next semester, which is like having a full-time job.
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
Keep a running list of things you need to get done and decide what is important to you. Sometimes it’s not fun putting off hanging out with your friends to get things done, but it’s so rewarding to be able to cross things off your list. Also, build relationships with your professors! These are the people who can write letters of recommendation for you and help you out if you are in a tough spot academically. Put in the effort in the classroom and with your teacher, and they will be much more willing to help if you need anything.
