Babe Ruth once said, "Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game," and I have lived by his words for as long as I can remember. Giving up is not an option for me and I strive to live life with a positive attitude.
I am a hardworking, creative and outgoing individual with a heart for adventure and a passion for serving others. I love a good challenge and I have never been afraid of change, I believe it is a character builder. Family means the world to me and I love to spend time with friends. I wouldn't be who I am without them.
Born in a military family and the youngest of two set the building blocks for the person I am today. My dad was a Naval officer so living the "Navy brat" life described my childhood. For 13 years, moving to a new place every year was a reality. It wasn't until high school we stayed in the same place for four years, the longest I have had the opportunity to call one place "home." With five cross-country moves and 10 different houses, my childhood was one for the books. At a young age, my dad also instilled the importance of travel to gain skills and exposure to a variety of cultures. In my 22 years, I have visited 44 states, four continents and four countries in the Caribbean. These experiences broadened my perspective and fueled my growing love for travel.
I attended Colorado State University for my freshman year and enjoyed every opportunity, but realized it wasn't the proper choice for me at the time. I decided to transfer to Auburn University, which was a great decision, looking back I would do everything the same if I could do it over again. I chose Auburn because my brother was a student and every time I visited I loved it. From sophomore through senior year, Auburn became my home away from home. Auburn has provided me with a strong education, valuable skills and life-long memories I will always cherish. Through rich tradition and small-town family feel, Auburn has left a forever impression on my heart.
The opportunities I have experienced before and during college taught me lessons and skills that will benefit me in the long run. I am ready to face new challenges and opportunities. Future, I'm ready for you!
Thank you for your time and interest in learning about the person I am.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
