What are your plans after graduation? Your hopes for after graduation?

After graduation I will be attending graduate school at MCU. Along with school I am planning on having a job within a marketing firm based in Los Angeles, CA. Last but not least I will like to find more time to travel after I graduate!

What have you been involved in while at MCU?

During my time at MCU I have been involved in planning social events, volunteering, and working with the university. I have been a part of the Residential Hall Association since my freshmen year and during the past two years I have been the president. I have volunteered hosting incoming students during Marymount’s overnight program and many other events hosted at Marymount. I worked as summer community assistant in 2015 and 2016. For the past three years I have been a student assistant in the Marymount Residential Life Office. 

What is your favorite memory of MCU?

My favorite memory is attending my first Central RAP Conference in 2015 and winning the spirit stick. Being apart of the Residential Hall Association I was able to attend Central RAP Conference with a few my fellow team members and the Residential Advisors. Both of our teams worked hard in preparing for this conference, we created our costumes, practiced chants, and worked together to spread the Marymount spirit.

What advice do you have for other students?

Get involved, work hard, and enjoy yourself!

What was your favorite experience at MCU?

When I was a senior in high school I was invited to Marymount’s Mariner’s Overnight program at the residential halls. Being able to participant in this program allows recently accepted Marymount students to experience what it would be like to be apart of the Marymount community. During my stay at Marymount I met current Marymount students and other accepted students like myself, some whon I am still friends with to this day. We played games, had dinner, watch movies, and got to know more about Marymount. After attending this program I knew Marymount was the university I wanted to attend because I felt like I belonged here.

Your favorite faculty member and your favorite class at MCU?

My favorite faculty member is Kevin Kaeochinda and my favorite class was Integrated Marketing Communications.
