While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My mom, who I would be so lost without. My dad, Michael, Savannah, Izzy, the rest of my family, and my friends. I would also like to thank the Communication department and its faculty and staff. I am so proud to be a part of that department and will forever be grateful to it.

My favorite SMC memory is

My favorite memory would have to be traveling and studying abroad in Oxford for Jan Term 2020. I loved my experience and the people I shared it with made it even better.

I'm looking forward to most
