Why did you choose Belmont?
I chose Belmont because of the community that I found here. When I visited, I immediately felt like I was at home. The professors made me feel like I was at home, and showed me that I actually mattered.

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide?
I really wanted to get involved in more ways to reach out to prospective students. I love being able to offer advice and help students during one of the most stressful times of their educational career.

What is your favorite on-campus event?
I love Fall Follies! It's an SNL-like show about Belmont performed and written by students. It happens every fall, and is hilarious!

What is your favorite movie?
I'm not too into movies, but I can always watch The Graduate!

What is your favorite song & artist/band?
It's hard to pick just one song. Right now, I'm really into Paul Simon, Arctic Monkeys and David Bowie.

What would you want to be your last meal on earth?
My last meal would probably be chicken nuggets. I love chicken nuggets.

What is your favorite Nashville experience?
My favorite thing to do in Nashville is going downtown. I enjoy spending time in the public library, which is absolutely beautiful, checking out all of the old buildings, and neat architecture of the city.

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont?
I'm still not sure what I would like to do after school.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why?
I have taken two classes with Dr. Byrne, and I have loved them both! While the classes were incredibly hard, I found them very rewarding. I have discovered new interests and passions and learned so much.

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say?
College isn't so much about where you go, but what you make of your time there. While your school's name or ranking might feel like a big deal to you now, all that matters once you get there is what you do, who you meet and what you make of it.
