Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I applied to be an Alumni Ambassador because of my love and passion for NC State and its traditions. I have been a Wolfpack fan since I was old enough to make the wolfie sign and I wanted to be able to give back to the university and help inspire others to also have the love for its amazing traditions. I was excited about the opportunity to be apart of the most important events that occur throughout your time as a student and as an alumni. 

What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I am most excited about being able to have a hand in planning and facilitating some of the university's most treasured events and traditions. I can't wait to share with other students all that being apart of NC State for a lifetime has to offer and all of the amazing opportunities they can obtain from being apart of it. Homecoming is near and dear to my heart and I cannot wait to watch all that we plan unfold to help make it the best event yet.

What event are you looking forward to most as an Alumni Ambassador? I am looking forward to Homecoming the most because I am a part of the committee and it’s so awesome to see how it all comes together to make such an incredible week-long event. Every event takes so much coordination and watching it all unfold to bring the NC State community together will be so exciting. All of the ambassadors are so unique and together we add so much ingenuity to events and Homecoming is sure to be a special one.

What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? I am also a Co-Director of Greek Relations for Dance Marathon at NC State. I am a part of Kappa Delta Sorority. I am involved in CRU and I teach a 1 year old class at Providence Baptist Church.
