What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
My most memorable contribution as a Queen was when I was a guest speaker for a freshmen mentorship program, Project KD. Being able to share my personal story and have a safe open place with young ladies that look up to me was a remarkable experience. It reminded me of why I love my school and represent it in the best way as possible. Here at Xavier we promote excellence and prepare students to assume roles of leadership. Working in an intimate space with future leaders not only allowed me to speak life into young ladies' futures, but become a mentor and big sister to them. My platform is all about unity and holding each other accountable. As Miss Xavier, I strive to hold my student body accountable while encouraging them, especially the young women.
