Favorite College Experience: "Connect, connect, connect! Build community and meet as many people as you can. Be inquisitive and open to all the people, activities, and opportunities that come your way. Life is full of learning and experiencing new things, and you never know what or who can impact your personal growth for the better."
Advice for High School and College Students: "I am shamelessly food motivated. There is nothing “edible” on this earth that I won’t try. Though I am always excited to eat any southern barbecue, “soul food,” or a Country Seafood Boil."
Favorite Food: "All the music! Belmont has a focus on music and the music business. Even though that is not the avenue I decided to take myself, I learned so much about one of my favorite personal muses. Being surrounded by so many musicians with diverse talents and skills made for lots of jam sessions, concerts, and musical events! Building community with some of the best friends I’ve ever made and enjoying the art of expression!"
