Why communication?
I was always good at public speaking and performing growing up. I also worked the camera in church during most of my childhood, so it made sense to be a communication major. 

Best memory in the Department?
I loved being a part of MSU first outside play, Midsummer.

What’s your favorite part of MSU and the Department of Communication? 
I love the Cowbell Yell experience. I enjoy seeing everyone come together and ring their bells in unison! My favorite part of the communication department is being in the news studio. It’s exciting to work on my craft amongst my fellow classmates, aka my MSU family. 

What has impacted you the most at MSU?
Housing and resident life has impacted me most. I was a resident advisor for 2 1/2 years. I’ve enjoyed creating a MSU experience for freshmen. 

Advice for incoming communication students?
Everything you learn will make sense, especially towards the end. Be sure to perfect your grammar and writing skills. 

Best advice you’ve received from a professor?
I was once told that the two best teachers were frustration and failure. 

If you were singing karaoke, what song would you pick to sing?
I would sing Congratulations because I have finally made it to the end of my education.

What’s the most interesting thing that you’ve read, watched or listened to lately?
Understanding the purpose and power of women by Myles Monroe. Best book ever!
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with that extra time?
I would practice playing the piano, and learn other new skills.
