In my time at Xavier, I have served as a member of the Student Government Association, Peer Dean Association, Peer Dean Planning Committee, multiple Homecoming and Springfest committees, and represented my University as a member of our Confucius Institute. In addition, I have helped host a countless number of events, and I am employed as a math mentor through the Southern Initiative Algebra Project.
"I aspire to become a lawyer, specializing in public defense, medical malpractice, or family court. It is of the upmost importance that Black and brown people are able to seek council that they can relate to and trust, because this occupation can either improve or ruin a person's future.
What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?:
So far, my most memorable contribution has been showing the student body that anything is possible when you're genuine, dedicated, and plan to be successful. I am the textbook definition of a regular student. I am not an athlete, I do not have a 4.0 GPA, and I am not a member of any Greek social organizations. In addition, I heard some backlash and doubts about me running for this position, because of my sexual orientation. However, I have been well received by administration and my fellow Xavierites, and the support they have shown me is something I will never forget. My reign is helping show everyone that the way a Queen behaves, and the impact she leaves on her campus, is more important than how a Queen looks.
