 What is your favorite memory at Auburn so far?

My favorite memory at Auburn so far was definitely taking scuba diving with my sister last year. It was so much fun! We made so many memories together, including her having to help me when I got a concussion from my scuba tank hitting me in the head. 

What is your favorite quote?

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

What experience at Auburn has made you grow the most so far?

Without a doubt, going KD has allowed me to grow the most during my time at Auburn. I am surrounded by people who truly believe in me and constantly show me love, grace, and forgiveness. On top of all that, the Lord has given me incredible friends and sisters who encourage me each and every day. In a short year and a half, I have created the sweetest friendships that I am confident will last a lifetime. 

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?

I would have to say that I would want to witness Ronald Reagan’s inauguration. I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to politics and he is my all time favorite president. He’s is someone that I have always looked up to because of his way with words. I mean that’s why they call him “The Great Communicator”, right?! Also, no matter what side of the political spectrum you align with, you really can’t deny that Ronald Reagan LOVED every aspect of America! 

 If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

Australia! I have some really good family friends that live over there and I cannot wait for the day I get to go over there to visit them.

What is your favorite quote?

What experience at Auburn has made you grow the most so far?

 Becoming a KD has impacted my time here at Auburn in so many different ways. I have been surrounded by people that encourage me and push me to be the best version of myself. The girls in KD have not only pushed me to be the best version of myself but they continually pour into my life and show the true definition of the Lords love and grace. The Lord has truly shown me how sweet and special a friendship is and I couldn’t be more thankful that I have found that here in KD.

What experience at auburn has made you grow the most so far?

I think becoming a kd has made me grow the most at auburn. I had the same friends and people around me all throughout high school so coming to auburn with no one was hard. I’m very outgoing but being thrown into a group of over 200 girls can be intimidating. I think it was one of the best things that has happened for me! Every girl brings a different friendship to the table and I’m so blessed by the girls from all different places that I’m now best friends.
