About Me: I am a proud alumna of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, where I was named one of the 50 Most Promising Multicultural Students in the nation by the American Advertising Federation. I have worked on advertising campaigns for some of Columbia's largest grand openings and have served as a national account executive for one of the nation's largest foodservice distributors. Working in youth ministry helped me realize my passion for helping students succeed. I enjoy watching Gamecock football, listening to all genres of music and spending time with family and friends.

Advice to Students: Do not procrastinate! Procrastination is your worst enemy in college. Keep a calendar of all of your assignment due dates and schedule time to work on those assignments.
