Biggest accomplishment as a student leader:
Presenting my self-developed peer health education program “Fifty Shades of WHAT?” this past November at a National Conference, BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA General Assembly, which has since reached over 600 students. This program has only been available for under a year, and it is a joy to see it growing and educating so many students about a controversial issue!
Best OHIO memory:
Way to many to pick just one! I love being involved with my organizations. From this year my top favorites were participating in the Homecoming parade, attending and presenting at a national conference, and acting in the Vagina Monologues!
I love to color code everything. Last semester, I lost my yellow-ink pen that I use to write in my planner for POWER/GAMMA related events. I looked all over for a yellow-ink pen, meanwhile my organized life was falling to pieces all because of a pen. I finally had to go on Amazon and buy a new yellow pen. Crisis averted.
Your role model and why:
Ben Braddock, my fiance, for he is constantly putting himself out there, achieving, and making a difference on this campus and in the world. He inspires me to be my very best, and he constantly encourages me and reminds me of how great I am.
What makes a leader:
The desire and passion to affect change, but also the self-confidence and reasoning to find the best solution to do so.
