The Ninth Floor of the Library, as it is a quiet study area with a great view outside the window.

Try to solve equations in my ways.

My passion is marketing. I am a marketing major, starting my career in brand marketing. I am also planning to pursue my Masters in marketing to identify different ways to advertise products to consumers. In my spare time, I study any consumer goods around me to see how they are trying to attract me.

The one UNCG experience I will always remember will be…

Standing on the graduation stage with the Chancellor as a University Marshal.

Are there particular Division of Student Affairs offices that have made a significant impact on your time here?

I have learned professionalism in the Division of Student Affairs office, while I worked there as a student. Besides that, the SGA was a great platform where I could show my leadership skills and solve students’ problems in real life.

What does student leader mean to you?

A person who is motivated to bring positive change in the society by solving people’s problems and concerns. They should also help students in their needs and lead them towards the right direction.

How do you think your campus involvement and student leadership experience has prepared you for life after UNCG?

UNCG was the first place for me where I started practicing leadership. I have served in several roles as a student which has helped me stand out of the crowd and achieve a full-time job before graduation. It has boosted my confidence.

How would you describe UNCG to a prospective student?

UNCG is a place where a student can discover themselves. It has all the resources to develop you as a potential candidate in the future. It’s a very diverse community with a willingness to help.

In what ways have you experienced UNCG’s Culture of Care?

I loved the Culture of Care here at UNCG. I always had a helping hand here for solving any problems. When I started my journey at UNCG, I was very new in America. Thus, the professors, staff, and students have shown limitless support to me. They made sure I understood the educational structure and cultural norms of America. It made my migration way easier.

As you look back on your time at UNCG, what advice would you give to an incoming freshman?

I would advise students to explore all the opportunities UNCG offers and utilize them. This will not only help them to secure a job but will make them a better individual.
