Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I wanted to be part of a place where I knew I could grow and somewhere that would push me to be better. As a professional development organization, AASAP has done just that. I want a legacy here at NC State that has allowed to to have an impact here on campus.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I love being able to make a difference on campus. Overseeing all the events we host and getting to interact with a students from such diverse backgrounds is a driving factor for me.
What is your favorite AASAP event? My favorite AASAP event is the NC Sync event during Homecoming. We as an organization work so hard (Homecoming especially!!) that week and getting to see the hard work pay off throughout the events of Homecoming makes it worth it. Nc Sync is so fun to see everyone enjoying themselves on stage and cheering is so entertaining and definitely a favorite event every year.
What is your favorite AASAP memory? My favorite AASAP memory was last fall when my class of ambassadors all got their rings. It was a few weeks before school was ending and I was coming up on the date when I’d be leaving for my semester abroad in Spain, so I was really trying to cherish all the events we had at the end of the semester. We all got to open and wear our rings together and show off all the dedication both to NC state and to AASAP all together.
What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? My sorority Delta Gamma, being a University ambassador, women in business

3rd Year Ambassador
Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I wanted the opportunity to leave a lasting impact at NC State. I knew this organization had the ability to reach a lot of different people on campus and I felt as though I could positively impact NC State as a whole by being a part of it.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I love being able to share my passion and love for NC State with others. The ability to get other students excited about all the incredible things that happen at NC State is such a fulfilling feeling. I enjoy having the opportunity to collaborate with my peers to plan and execute various events throughout the year that foster enthusiasm for campus traditions and promote student involvement on campus.
What is your favorite AASAP event? My favorite AASAP event is the Ring Ceremony. From putting the rings in the Belltower, to receiving them in Reynolds Coliseum, it is a special occasion worth celebrating. It is so rewarding to see everyone get their class ring. This symbol represents how hard students have worked to get to this point in their academic career and motivates them to finish college strong. Upon receiving this ring, they are part of the Pack forever.
What is your favorite AASAP memory? The trip to Washington, D.C. in the spring of my sophomore year. I really enjoyed getting to explore our Nation's capital with the other ambassadors during this long weekend adventure. It was a great opportunity to network with Alumni in D.C., visit some popular museums on the Mall, and grow closer as a family.
What is something you are involved in outside of AASAP? I'm the Director of the Traditions Department within Student Government and I compete on the Club Soccer and Club Cross Country and Track teams. I'm also involved in Chancellor's Aides, University Ambassadors, PackAbroad Ambassadors, and the University Honors Program.
