What have you gained from being a student leader?

I have gained many leadership skills since getting involved at SFASU. My student leadership opportunities have helped me become more patient and understanding of others opinions and views.

How do you balance your academic and co-curricular activities?

I use my planner religiously. I can't survive without sticky notes! I always say "If it is not on a sticky note, it doesn't exist."

What advice would you give to a student thinking about getting involved?

Do it! Getting involved was the best decision I've ever made. I've gained my best friends from being involved and I've really been able to make the most out of my college experience.

How do you live by the SFA Way?

Respect is a huge aspect of my life. Everyone deserves respect and everyone should give respect. Just trying to live by the 5 core values of the SFA Way and demonstrating that around campus is a great start!

In what ways do you plan to utilize your leadership skills after college?

I'm hoping that the skills and experiences I've gained as a student leader at SFA will prepare me for the diverse opportunities I will face as a professional.
