I am from Keller, Texas and have attended MSU since my freshman year. Currently, I am pursuing a degree in political science with a minor in sociology. After completing my undergraduate degree, I intend on going to law school to further my education. While at MSU, I have been active in many organizations and committees. I am involved in Alpha Phi Fraternity where I have been the SGA Senator, Director of Continuous Open Bidding, and the Vice President of Chapter Operations. As a member of this Panhellenic sorority, I do community service throughout the semester and participate in philanthropic events. The other organization I actively participate in is Student Government. Thus far, I have been the Freshman Senator, Chairman of the Bylaw Committee, Chairman of the Elections Committee, President Pro Tempore, and now, I proudly serve as President. I played a primary role in creating the new Homecoming procedure and watching its implementation during the fall of 2013. Outside of these organizations, I serve on the Student Conduct Committee and am a member of the National Society for Collegiate Scholars after my induction in the spring of 2014. Each of these activities has given me the privilege of receiving many awards, honors, and other recognitions, which include being a finalist for Freshman and Sophomore Woman of the year and Freshman Lady on the homecoming court. I feel that this university has offered me many opportunities and I look forward to giving back during my 2014-2015 term!

I would have never thought I would be running for Vice President of SGA, but as my quote by Emily Dickinson said, "We never know how high we are, Til we are called to rise," and I have been called to rise to the occasion and display my ability to enhance OUR university. Here are some of my recent endeavors where I have risen to the occasion:
- 2013-2014 Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Senator,
- Alpha Chi and National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
- 2013-2014 Co-Chair of the Caribbean Students Organization's (CSO) Social Committee (Sub Committee)
- I am employed at the University Development Office, where I have hit the Golden Tower Status, which means that I have raised more than $10,000 for OUR university.
- I am a goal oriented person.

The major am pursing is an undergraduate degree in the field of Marketing-BBA. I have chosen this field of study because in today’s business environment, marketing is a key position which helps to bring awareness, generate higher sales, improve a company reputation and bring healthy competition to a company’s products and services. Whether you are running a grocery shop, winery, casino or even a whole country, one can't afford to simply sit back and hope people come and visit. You've got to take the matter into your own hands and employ a marketing strategy to maintain and develop your product and service. After all, no one will visit you if they've never heard of you.
John Quincy Adams once said “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” And I intend to inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more once I get the opportunity to serve on the MSU Students Government Association.
I am a very proactive student on-campus. I am presently the Co-Chair of the Caribbean Students Organization (CSO) 2014 Caribfest Committee, Interim Senator for the American Advertising Federation and a former production member of the 2014 CSO’s Expressions Show. I think by volunteering my service to various organizations and businesses would help me to expand my knowledge and awareness which can be passed onto other MSU students. With that being said, during the annual great day of service last fall semester, I had volunteered my service to assist Whispers of Hope Horse Farm to clean the entire farm and organizing the equipments for the kid’s. I will ensure that I uphold the standards of MSU and in doing so contribute my efforts to the Students Government Association.
Recently, the American Advertising Federation has nominated me for the 2014 Junior Male of the Year which I will be recognized during the university annual Honors Recognition Banquet.
