Something I wish I knew as a Freshman: I wish I knew that it is ok to be uncertain about what you want to pursue. Be kind to yourself, you will find your niche in this world one day.
Why did you become an ambassador? I want to help students at UNT be more involved with the Geography Department and have a better understanding of their current and future education. I also want the Geography department to grow through different forms of outreach provided by the students and I.
What is your favorite memory from your time at UNT? My favorite memory from my time at UNT is working with my sustainability team at Victory Pond. Not only being apart of a great team but being able to do science at a beautiful location is just the start of the opportunities UNT provides.
How do you plan to use your degree? I would love to work with Game, Fish, and Parks in the fishery and hatchery career field.

Something I wish I knew as a Freshman: I wish I knew how many people I would meet with the same interests as me! There is someone out there for everyone, we just have to be willing to try!

What is your favorite memory from your time at UNT? My favorite memory from UNT was my first football game as a freshman! We lost like we always do but it was a great experience.
How do you plan to use your degree? My plan has never been linear but, I hope to use my degree to help climate refugees and eventually become a teacher!
