Something I wish I knew as a Freshman: I wish I knew that I should just talk to everyone. Being a freshman is special, because everyone is experiencing similar things. By talking to anyone and everyone, you not only grow as a person, but also meet so many people and make amazing friendships in the most surprising ways.

Why did you become an ambassador? I wanted to grow the department by connecting it to student life, and to bring more exposure to the amazing offerings of these professors.

What is your favorite memory from your time at UNT? My favorite memory is most definitely my study abroad experience in Spain this past summer!

How do you plan to use your degree? My goal is to earn a Ph.D. in a field related to my majors and teach at the university level!
