Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? As a transfer student I was looking for a place to make a difference on campus and to get involved. I thought being an Alumni Ambassador would connect me with other students who love NC State in pursuit of making a difference in our school's community.

What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I am most excited about being an Alumni Ambassador because of the impact I am actively making on the NC State community. To know that future generations will see what I have done makes me not only proud to be part of the Wolfpack, but proud of my role as an Alumni Ambassador.

What event are you looking forward to most as an ambassador? I am looking forward to the Homecoming events the most because being on the committee has made me excited. I am also super excited to be presenting the group spirit award on the field during half time at the homecoming game. It is a moment that will forever tie me to the NC State community.   

What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? I am involved in Delight - A Women's Campus Ministry, Lambda Pi Eta - an honors society for communication majors,  and University Ambassadors for NC State Football.
