The past four years I have had the incredible opportunity to serve Auburn through the Freshman Leadership Program. FLP is a series of nine different groups made up of 45 freshmen. Each group devotes itself to a specific project that ranges from community service to campus government. I have held the assistant director, director and executive vice president of communications positions. I oversaw the leadership development of 45 freshmen for two years, organized publicity strategies, regulated visits from other organizations to FLP and sent weekly updates to the staff.
Esperanza House has been the biggest blessing in my life. Founded in the fall of 2015, the organization connects the Spanish-speaking community and provides aid to them. With them, I tutored children with Spanish backgrounds in the Auburn public school system twice a week. We also packed and served lunches to the Spanish families every Thursday during the summer.
Soccer has always been a joy of mine. I’ve played from the time I was five years old to my senior year in high school. I thought I was ready to be done with it by the time I came to college. However, I ended up missing it terribly and joined the Auburn Women’s Club Team my sophomore year. Playing soccer has taught me the value of teamwork, hard work and commitment.
Auburn invites high school students to the university once a year for the Auburn High School Leadership Conference. The conference teaches students how to exercise their leadership skills in their respective high schools. Acting as a counselor, I helped students analyze the strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats of their service programs at their schools.
I chose to join Alpha Gamma Delta because I knew the girls would push me to be the best I could be. They saw potential in me and supported me throughout my entire college career. I couldn't be more thankful for them. They accepted me for who I was and celebrated the person I want to become.
My passion for comedy drove me to try stand-up comedy. Though I was terrified at first, being on stage is an absolute thrill! I love making other people laugh and sharing the joy, even if it is just for a little while. It’s taught me confidence and the need to take risks while not letting fear control me.
