"I learned so much about an individual’s character in the class and my professor was also an amazing soul. She taught me that you should always live your life with the highest moral character because if you diminish that character it could take you a lifetime to recover it."

Why did you choose to attend UofL?

I chose to attend UofL because of the atmosphere. Everyone at UofL was so welcoming and the campus is so beautiful. When I came to UofL for a tour, I pictured myself walking around campus and I knew in that moment that it was going to be my home.

Is there a particular class that’s had an impact on you?

Philosophy has had a tremendous impact on me. Even though I took this class to fulfill a General Education requirement, I learned so much about an individual’s character in the class and my professor was also an amazing soul. She taught me that you should always live your life with the highest moral character because if you diminish that character it could take you a lifetime to recover it.

What activities and organizations are you involved in? Do you see these having an impact on life after graduation?

I am currently involved in ELSB, SOAR, Habitat for Humanity, REACH Ambassador and YoungLife. I believe that all of these organizations will impact my life as they will give me leadership, service, and communication skills that I can use in all aspects of my life now and forever.

After graduation, I plan to…

After graduation, I plan to become a Fulbright scholar and travel to a Spanish-speaking country to further my educational endeavors.

How is UofL preparing you for life after college?

UofL is preparing me to be a leader and to be mindful of not only myself, but of the events that are going on in my society now and that happened in the past in order to prepare for the future. I believe that UofL is teaching me to be knowledgeable in all areas of my lives.

How have you benefitted from donations to UofL?

Because of donations to UofL, I am able to attend UofL using the Woodford R. Porter Scholarship.

Favorite location on campus? 

There are so many but my top two are the picnic bench with the giant leaf by the Speed Art Museum and the quad area in between the Ekstrom library and the humanities building.
