How did you learn about ASU?
I first learned about ASU from a program that I was apart of for first generation students called AVID. In that program we learned about different universities and ASU was one of them. We also got the chance to tour ASU, and after touring it I fell in love the campus.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
I wanted to attend because of how close the school was to my hometown, how affordable it was, and on top of it all everyone seemed so friendly and helpful. Which to me stood out extremely.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is all of the traditions that make ASU unique, the gum tree that bring good luck, homecoming and all of the events that are held throughout, ram jam tailgate fun, and my absolute favorite the victory line that happens welcoming the Ram football team back on the field.
What are some of your hobbies?
I like the outdoors a lot, so anytime I get I venture out and enjoy nature. I also am a big movie person so I also enjoy watching ton of movies.
Are you involved in any student organizations?
Yes, I am involved in Rams for Christ an organization that is fun and keeps me involved with my religion.
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
Yes, I am a Resident Assistant in charge of a living learning community for first generation students. Some of my responsibilities are to make sure the building is secure and all looks good throughout. Other responsibilities is to be there for my residents when they need me, I help them with guiding them to school resources and on campus resources that can help them out. I also put on programs for them that help them in different areas learning, relaxing, and just having fun.
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
Try not to procrastinate when it comes to school work, be on top of your school work. It can be easy to get side track, but you can stay on track. When things get rough use the resources around campus to help you succeed. But try not to stress yourself out and still have fun making college memories that will last a lifetime.
