Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I decided to be an ambassador because I wanted to be able to leave my mark on NC State by influencing our traditions and starting new ones! For example last year we started the tradition of having fireworks after the homecoming parade! It was the first time fireworks had been fired off on campus! What a cool mark to leave!

What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? The best part about being an Alumni Ambassador is the networking and opportunities it provides! I have met so many people throughout my time at NC State, but the most genuine ones have been other ambassadors or alumni staff.  AASAP provides a sense of family on such a large campus!

What is your favorite AASAP event? My favorite AASAP event is the annual homecoming parade! It bring all the different organizations and alumni together to put on this one awesome show. Seeing the crowd on Hillsborough Street filled with alumni, families, students, and fans really just gets shows how hard we work to provide unforgettable experiences to students even after they graduate!  

What is your favorite AASAP memory? One of my favorite AASAP memories would be the time we went to a Durham bulls games as one of our social events for the semester! It was so relaxing and we all shared some good laughs while enjoying some baseball and hot dogs!

What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Outside of being an Alumni Ambassador I am also involved with Dance Marathon (Hospital Committee Director), University Ambassador (tour guide), employee at WakeMed ED in Apex, and also a member of the Pre-PA club!
