Biggest accomplishment as a student leader: 

My biggest accomplishment as a student leader has been to help others discover their leadership. As a former Resident Assistant, I enjoyed helping my residents discover new interests, get involved on campus and obtain leadership positions. Even now in my leadership roles, I love that I have the ability to help empower others to become leaders.

What makes a leader?

I believe that confidence and a willingness to do what is right as well as encourage others are some of the best qualities of a leader.

Best memory at OHIO:

Countless nights laughing and doing homework with five of my closest friends…all of whom I met at Ohio University.

Biggest quirk:

Cleanliness. I disinfect everything!

Your role model and why:

It is always so difficult for me to choose a role model because I have so many. I would say my mother is my biggest role model in her selflessness and determination has always inspired me to work hard even in time of adversity.
