Hometown: Cumming, Georgia
Major: Pre-medicine, Bible
About me: Everyday that we are given is a new opportunity...Seize the day! I’m all about waking up early to go for a run before the sun comes up. I love the outdoors; crazy about stars and sometimes I just sleep on my back porch to feel closer to God. I tend to be overly passionate about everything. Sometimes it makes choosing a direction hard and I’m tagged quickly as indecisive. I’m all about adventures and taking risks. Laughter is essential. There is little better in this world than the laugh-so-hard-you-cry feeling. Though I’m all for having fun, I have always taken life seriously and hard work is often the difference between try and triumph. The journey has just begun. I’m simply striving to be my best. I am such a broken person and I fail time and time again. God’s grace has overwhelmed me when I needed it most, and I would not be the person I am today without Him.
A word that describes me: Enthusiastic
Favorite food: Cheerios
Favorite Bible verses: Philippians 4:11, "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God."
Favorite quotes: "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" (Robert Brault). "Correction does much, but encouragement does more” (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe).
Interests/Sports: Playing on playgrounds. Hiking. Completing things that look impossible. Live music. Learning new things. Gymnastics, Baseball, Track & Field, and Soccer!

Something I want to do before I die: Run a marathon
A famous person I've met: Nastia Liukin
A random fact about myself: I swear my feet are claustrophobic, so if you catch me wearing shoes, consider yourself blessed.
Why I wanted to become an RA: I use to be painfully shy but as I continue to grow in Christ I realized that there is a freedom in life. And everyday I’m learning better to truly live. I am passionate about helping girls grow into the young women they were meant to be. Hopefully be an extra encouragement in girls' lives to embrace the beauty of our uniquenesses and use them to bring glory to God.
