I am double majoring in English and Philosophy, and minoring in Pre-law. I hope to complete my two years at Mississippi State University and eventually advance to a graduate program. As a first-generation college student, it is important for me to excel in my academics. I have maintained my status as a Dean’s list scholar through my academic career. I have completed multiple community service projects through the different organizations that I have been a part of and led. My goals in academia are to encourage my peers and to continuously push the boundaries of education and scholarship.
