3rd Year Ambassador
Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I wanted to find an organization on campus that was close-knit and passionate about their mission. AASAP works so hard to contribute to the NC State community and its traditions and I love being a part of something so special.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I get excited about everything we do as an organization because I get to do it with my AASAP family where every individual has a talent to contribute and a passion for our school.
What is your favorite AASAP event? I don’t have a favorite event, I have a favorite week of events. Homecoming is the best week of the year for me because AASAP plans so many events that go on throughout the week. When that week comes I get to work the events alongside all of the ambassadors and we get to see our visions and hard work come to life. It’s such a rewarding experience.
What is your favorite AASAP memory? Picking a favorite memory from AASAP is extremely difficult for me. I’m so honored and proud to be a part of this group and every moment is great with these friends. If I had to choose, I would say Fall Retreat. We get to officially welcome all of our new ambassadors and start to form bonds from the fun activities and laughter we share.
What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Outside of AASAP I work as a medical assistant for a doctor in Raleigh. I’m also dedicated to my school work and I love to hang out and go on adventures with my friends.
