Be patient. When studying you may not understand the course material all the time. Just be patient, keep studying and be proud of how hard you’re working. Also take time to just enjoy learning. Many courses you will take in college are fascinating. Get involved, meet new people and just have fun with education.

I’m passionate about education. I truly enjoy learning and understanding something new. There is so much knowledge out there and just being able to pick up a book and learn something new is amazing. Lastly, I am passionate about fitness. I enjoy my time at the gym or a nice early morning jog.

Who has had the greatest influence on your life?

My family has a great influence on my life. Having their support even through rough times has been awesome. They taught me to always find happiness even when life throws a storm at you. Just keep moving forward and surround yourself with great people. Eventually the storm will pass and your days will definitely be amazing.
