Hometown: Arlington, Texas
How did you learn about ASU?
I learned about ASU from a family friend who was at the time currently in rolled in ASU’s nursing program. She always raved about her college experiences, so I decided to check it out for myself.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
I wanted to attend ASU because I learned after taking a tour at the nursing school that the professors truly strive to have their students succeed. They make sure that they’re available 24/7 and not just the regular office hours for the students with questions. Some of the professors had even added virtual office hours to accommodate students’ busy schedules. I wanted to go to a school where the professors were as committed to me graduating as I am myself.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is how friendly everyone is. Tradition and events that are put on around campus bring students together. So much so that people no longer look at each other as classmates but more as a family.
What are some of your hobbies?
As a nursing student, I don’t have time for too many hobbies but when I do I like to hike and do some yoga.
Are you involved in any student organizations?
The last two semesters I have been involved in the Student Nursing Association (SNA) and the Baptist Student Ministry (BSM)
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
I currently do not work on campus. However, this past summer I had the benefit of working for the housing department as a community assistant. I was responsible for helping check-in and out camps in the dorms, prepared rooms for their stay, and helped maintain the safety of some of the residence halls. This allowed the camps to have a more enjoyable stay.
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
Your competition isn’t other people. Your competition is your procrastination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you’re consuming, the knowledge you neglect. The negative behavior you’re nurturing and your lack of creativity. Compete against that.
