Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador?I decided to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador after I found out how many of the events on campus the organization put on, so many of them independently by just the student group. I wanted to be apart of not only hosting and planning those tradition and homecoming events, but also the close group of friends I could tell the ambassadors already were.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I love being able to share how much I love NC State with the entire student body, but also with all of the other AASAP members. Getting everyone excited about how much this University has to offer and being apart of building the legacy that NC State holds is so rewarding.
What is your favorite AASAP event? Picking a favorite AASAP event is hard, but I think mine would be the evening that we sent out invitations to the all of the new ambassadors once recruitment is over. I love being able to see how excited all of the new ambassadors are to have been selected to be apart of the organization, but also how excited all of the returning ambassadors are to welcome them. It brings graduating seniors and members, new and old, together to be excited about what's next for the organization.
What is your favorite AASAP memory? My favorite AASAP memory was getting to put my class ring in the Belltower last fall. Being able to participate in this tradition with other members of AASAP, who were also getting their class ring's, was really special. I wear my ring every day and will never get tired of walking past the Belltower to class, so it was definitely a very special experience.
What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Outside of being an Alumni Ambassador, I am the Vice President of Foundation for Delta Gamma, Sociology Honors Program, Pre-Law Club, Order of Omega, volunteer a ton, & have an internship!

2nd Year Ambassador
Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? This was an organization I sought to be a part of after seeing the impact that the Ambassadors make on the NC State Community. I saw an opportunity for self growth, leadership, and great friendships through this program. I couldn't have anticipated the communication skills, individual mentoring, or unique opportunities that I have also gained from being an Alumni Ambassador.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? What excites me the most about this organization is the people I get to share all of these experiences with. Growing together as leaders and supporting one another through the events we hold has taught me a lot about teamwork. I love being surrounded by motivated individuals that share the same passion for NC State as I do!
What is your favorite AASAP event? The event I always look forward to is the Ring Ceremony held in Reynolds Coliseum. Learning about the history and traditions of NC State alongside the dramatic ring reveal creates a great event that families can be apart of on campus. Helping facilitate this event and seeing fellow Ambassadors receive their ring is a special tradition that I have the pleasure to uphold.
What is your favorite AASAP memory? My favorite AASAP memory is having the opportunity to meet the 2017 Homecoming speaker Christina Koch, who will be aboard the International Space Station beginning in 2019. Hearing her inspiring story as an NC State Alum hit home knowing her roots are with the Wolfpack.
What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Outside of Alumni Ambassadors, I am involved in AATCC (American Association of Textile and Color Chemists)
