What was your most rewarding experience during your time at Texas A&M?
My most rewarding experience has been serving as a Maroon Coat. Supporting the Texas A&M Foundation by thanking generous donors and sharing my passion as an Aggie with prospective students has been one of my greatest honors. Serving as a Maroon Coat has provided me opportunities to share the deep, personal gratitude I have toward generous donors like the ones who invested in me and my future.
How did you embody the Aggie Spirit?
Selfless service is at the forefront of Texas A&M’s core values. It is important to me to be servant-hearted and others-oriented. I have contributed to the Aggie Spirit through giving of my time, energy, skills and heart to organizations in which the main purpose is to serve others. I have done this through serving as an IMPACT counselor, a Texas A&M Foundation Maroon Coat, a Bible study leader in my sorority, a Breakaway volunteer and more. I will carry these transformative experiences with me in the seasons to come and will never stop contributing to the Aggie Spirit.
What are your plans after graduation?
I was accepted to The World Race, which is an 11-month mission trip in 11 different countries. I will serve the people of Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. While living in each country for one month, my team and I will be involved in transformative projects for local churches and communities. I am eager to take this next year to serve in sustainable missions before beginning my corporate career in sales.
