Why did you want to become a CAFNR Ambassador? I wanted to become a CAFNR Ambassador to have the opportunity to share the experiences within CAFNR that have enhanced my Mizzou experience! I have learned more both in and out of the classroom than I could have imagined, and love getting to tell prospective students about that!

What has been your favorite part of your degree program so far? My favorite part of biochemistry has been my classmates! Our first class freshman year, our professor encouraged us to find a study group–those are the people that I still study with as a senior!

Best study spot? The best study spot on campus is the outdoor tables outside of Memorial Union!

Best place for a snack or coffee? Starbucks in Memorial is always a great, but I also really enjoy Bookmark Café in Ellis Library!

Dream career? I want to be a dentist!

What do you love about CAFNR? I love that CAFNR has so many opportunities and resources for students to accomplish their goals! For anything you could imagine, there is a system in place to help!

What advice do you have for incoming students? I encourage incoming students to keep an open mind! Whether that be joining a club, taking a class outside of your major, or exploring a new place in Columbia, something good will come of it!!
