Why did you decide to run for eboard? I really wanted to give back to PRSSA because it has given me so many wonderful opportunities and friendships since becoming a member my sophomore year. I’m thrilled to be the voice on social media that showcases our passionate and prestigious chapter during my last semester at OU!
Career Goals? Celebrity Publicist working in Hollywood or Travel Writer/Social Media Manager for National Geographic (:
Favorite Spot on Campus? Scripps Amphitheater
Favorite Singer/Band? It changes daily because I love all genres of music, but right now it’s a tie between alt-J and Disclosure.
Campus Involvement? PRSSA VP of Social Media, PACE writer for Undergraduate Admissions
Hobbies? Traveling, reading, netflixing, running, hanging out with my family and friends.
Favorite Athens food joint? O’Betty’s
How many siblings do you have? Two older brothers
Most Embarrassing Moment? Buying all of the books for the wrong freshman English class during my first quarter at OU. If that wasn’t the most awkward email correspondence with a professor ever, I don’t know what is.
Favorite thing about being a Bobcat? I love how being a Bobcat makes me feel like I have an extended family. We’ve all got this work-hard-play-hard mentality and give back to one another when needed. Then, the Bobcat experience at OU continues to live on through the Bobcat network after college. It’s a priceless college experience (don’t tell my mom I said that)
