Who do you admire and why?
My parents come to mind. They are both so loving and hard-working and I admire them for all their patient, caring, and intellectual qualities. I also admire Kristen Wiig. I think she is hilarious and so smart and witty. I would love to just have lunch with her and see what goes through her mind.

Life as an FSU Student
What made you choose your major?
I came to FSU not knowing what I would want to major in, but declared general communications. During my freshman Involvement Fair, I went to a table that was handing out Hershey’s Kisses and the girl at the table told me about FSU Ad Club.
I went to the first meeting, thought that it was amazing, and have been to every single Ad Club meeting since. I applied to the major in 2015 and got in, thanks to my mentor, Rachel Shannon, and a bunch of other mentors in the major.
What does your average day look like?
I wake up around 8:30, shower, eat breakfast, go to class, go to work either at FSU Campus Recreation or the DSA Marketing office in the Union, finish class, go to the Arrowhead Lab to do some homework and work on anything Arrowhead related, go home around 12am and go to sleep to do it all again!
Your favorite study spot on campus?
The Arrowhead lab. It’s a quiet place that I spend so much time in, it basically feels like home. Plus if I ever need anyone, there are usually people in there that I can ask for help.
What’s your dream career?
My dream career would be to work with a lifestyle brand, either fashion, food, travel, film. I aspire to be the creative director and produce content that goes with the brand – website, magazine, YouTube series. I would be there to help make sure that everything is “on brand” and has a consistent and distinctive image.
Share a notable (funny, embarrassing, exciting) experience you’ve had at FSU?
On my way to Pow Wow to see Whitney Cummings this year, I had just parked and was running late. I walked across Macomb and Pensacola and a woman asked me if this was the Civic Center. She looked a little familiar but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I said yes and offered to walk with her since I was heading there too.
We talked a little and said that she lived in Los Angeles and asked me questions about what I was majoring in. We got to the front of the Civic Center and she said she had to make a call, so she called someone and said, “Hey, yeah I’m outside and I don’t know where to go, I’m by the South entrance.” She then said that she had to go because she was headlining the event tonight. So.. I casually had a fifteen minute conversation with Whitney Cummings before her stand up for Pow Wow.
Have you participated in any internships?
I’ve interned on-campus and my DSA Marketing position turned into a full time job. This past summer, I interned abroad through FSU International Programs in London, England. I worked for a financial startup called Rangewell. I was their Creative Content Intern, so I had the chance to help them brand their material, as well as create invitations, deck templates, GIFs, infographics, and other collateral for blogs and internal use.
Are you involved with student organizations?
I have been apart of Camp Kesem, Seminole Night Life, University Housing, Hillel at FSU. But FSU Ad Club has been the biggest part that I have stuck with all four years. I was a member my freshman and sophomore year and then became Secretary my junior year and President my senior year. It has been an amazing experience and this club has given me so many opportunities.
The club always goes on a trip to New York in the Fall semester, but in the Spring I have gone to Atlanta, Boston, and Chicago. Through these trips I have met so many professionals in the industry and have made contacts that have opened doors for internships and jobs in the future.
What advice would you give yourself in college?
You’ll get into FSU and you’ll love it, so don’t waste your money on those six other application fees.
