"My mom always told me, ‘Nothing is going to be handed to you. Go out and make your own way. Make a path for yourself. Success is something that’s earned.’ She’s encouraged me not to be just average, but to go beyond average and do what I know that I can do. She pushes me to be better. I’m in my sophomore year, majoring in Broadcast Journalism, and someday I’d like to do sports broadcasting. I love talking; I love communicating, so I think I'd enjoy broadcasting about anything. I’m ambitious, confident, humble, and I never give up."
