High School: Timberlake
Major: Mass Communication
Goals: I want to obtain a bachelor’s degree in mass communication and maintain a 4.0 while at Northwestern. My specific career is still undecided. I have always set goals for myself and worked to achieve them so that my life is fulfilled. I would love to take Kelly Ripa’s place on “Regis and Kelly.” My dream is to be a TV host one day.
Q: Was Northwestern your first choice?
A: I always thought I would attend OSU, but while in high school, I competed in the Miss Cinderella Pageant, and once I stayed on campus for a weekend and saw how much fun the students were having, I knew this was the place for me.
Q: Did you attend Ranger Preview in the fall, and if so, how did this help you decide to attend school here?
A: As any student would say, $400 for going to a college day? I will be there. Northwestern offers a number of great scholarships, which is a huge reason for me choosing Northwestern.
Q: Why do you like Northwestern?
A: The minute I stepped on campus my first semester, I knew this was the place for me. (It has everything) from small class sizes, friendly atmosphere and helpful professors to learning so much in just a short amount of time. Although I have only been here a year, I can truly say I couldn’t see myself anywhere else.
Q: What does being a Ranger mean to you?
A: Being a Ranger is more than just a college mascot, it is a connection of people who care about your choices and your future. It is the basic foundation for your success as a student.
Q: What clubs/student organizations do you participate in and why?
A: Student Government Association, Alpha Sigma Alpha, President’s Leadership Class, OBEA and Society of Professional Journalists. I feel to be a productive citizen, you must be involved in student activities to see how much of an impact you can have on those around you.
Q: If you are involved in activities on campus, how have these activities helped your success as a student?
A: I am currently serving as Miss Northwestern Oklahoma State University. As Miss NWOSU, I plan on working with teenagers and their self-confidence. Every teenager is faced with self-esteem issues and peer pressure, I decided it was more important to focus on the positive things in my life and to make my own choices. I like to share my life experiences to help others see that you can make your own choices and you can live outside of the box.
Q: What do you like best about going to school here?
A: I love being able to walk from one side of campus to the other in under 10 minutes. I enjoy being able to see at least five people I know during that same walk. I never feel uncomfortable on this campus. Everyone is here to help you enjoy college and come away from it successfully.
Q: If you live in the dorm, what are the benefits and/or why have you continued living in the dorm?
A: I lived in the dorms my freshman year, and I enjoyed being able to meet new people, have meals available and not have to pay my bills.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A: I am basically a Suzie Homemaker. I like cooking, sewing and decorating any time of day.
