A degree Bachelors  in Public Health (BSPH) and a Bachelors Degree and Concentration in Management (BSBA) . I plan on having a long fulfilling career in Healthcare Administration. 

What organizations were you involved in? 

I am involved in Public Health Association, and have worked for Housing and Residence Life for four years.  Working on campus the last four year has given me many opportunities to connect with students and meet new friends. 

Favorite spot on campus and why? 

My favorite spot on campus is the Norm Statue on campus. I remember going to the statue and taking photos prior to attending UNCC.  Also, during my freshman year I would pass Norm walking into campus from Moore Hall with my roommate daily.  Thinking back on this memory this spot has always held a special place in my heart, which is why I wanted my graduation photos here. 

What has been your favorite memory at UNC Charlotte?

One time, our Campus Activities Board did an outing to a Panther's game. It was my first NFL game, and my first Panther's game. I went with my roommate and boyfriend and we had hot chocolate and popcorn. 

Most valuable lesson learned during your college career? 

Spend time with the people and doing the things you're most passionate about. The true friends you make in college will last forever and that's how lifelong memories are made.
