"I find everyone unique. To me, if I had to pick a unique characteristic about me, it would be that I am very approachable and outgoing. My soccer team gave me an award for being the Most Approachable back in December. Everyone in this college that knows me well knows that if you come up to me with a question, I will help you as much as I can. I will lead you the right direction. They also know if they have a problem, they can always come to me and trust me too. That is why I am involved with Student Admission Representatives, Student Leadership, and am the recorder for Phi Theta Kappa.

"I do a lot with animals. Growing up, I was involved with in 4-H and FFA. I participated in Kansas High School rodeo, so I take a lot of pride with what I do with my horses. They are my biggest companions and passion. I started riding right after I started walking and have been obsessed ever since. I started officially participating in junior high rodeo in sixth grade, but I have been doing barrel races, pole bending, and team roping since I was young. I made it to nationals three times in junior high school and one year in high school.

"I really enjoy working at a kids’ camp during the summer. It has a lot of high moments. It’s a Christian camp, so we are able to share the gospel with kids. We get kids from all over, including those from really bad backgrounds. It’s a chance to love them and teach them. It’s really rewarding. My dream for the future is to be working with kids somehow. I don’t necessarily want to be a teacher. I want to be a mentor but not necessarily as a job. I want to be able to know kids and let them know they can come to me when they don’t have anyone else.

"I’m originally from South Texas, down between Houston and Galveston. I was actually recruited last year for shot put and discus. I told the coach at the time that I wanted to play volleyball. If I couldn’t do track and volleyball at the same time, I wasn’t coming. After being told I could play volleyball, I needed some signs to show me this is where I was supposed to be. My high school just finished doing the Wizard of Oz production. I thought that was the biggest sign I could get. Then, I had to do a school project that was based in Kansas.

"I’m originally from Rooks County, about an hour north of Hays. I was raised out in the country in the middle of nowhere, however I was born here in Pratt. My dad came to school here and my brother recently came down to school here. I was also involved with the homeschool group in Pratt, so it made my decision to attend PCC very easy.

"I am currently an office assistant for Student Services here at PCC. My husband brought me to here Pratt. He already lived here and his family lives here, so that’s how I got here. I applied for this job as soon as I saw it. I thought it would be cool to work around students that are kind of close to my age. I am young and I thought I could relate with them.  Being in the front office is nice because I get to be the welcoming face for people who walk in. I enjoy being able to greet people as they call or walk in the door.

"Being a hometown girl, I’ve always been involved with the Miss Kansas Pageant. I was a Sunflower Princess for years when I was little girl and one year I competed as a teen. After that, I took a year off. I went back to pageantry last year and competed as Miss Leavenworth County. This year in June, I will be competing as Miss Butler County. Between my senior year of high school and freshman year of college is when I chose my platform for Miss Kansas. My mom passed away when I was ten and my ultimate goal is to help others through tough situations such as that.

"I came to Pratt from Darlington, England to play soccer. When I came here, my major was undecided. I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I never really knew what I wanted to be growing up. I just took every day as it came. Since I have been here, I decided education was what I was going to major in. I don’t think there was any particular moment when I decided to become a teacher.  I just decided I wanted to teach younger children that are in elementary school, or what we call primary school back home – children around the ages of 4 to 11.

"My sophomore year, I decided I really liked math and science. Since engineering is a combination of the two, I decided to go with that. I am wanting to start with mechanical and electrical engineering and possibly go from there. The main reason I want to be an engineer is to help people. I want to fix things. To me, it’s not really about the money, it’s about the goals. The only reason I want a high paying job is to invest into things I really care about. I want to payback my parents. I want to donate to different efforts around the world. I want to be a positive influence on society.

"I definitely a lot of different passions. I have a passion of being on computers, technology, programming, being a cheerleader, and going hunting. I definitely grew up very diversely. Part of the reason why is because one of my brothers is adopted. He is from Ethiopia. My family has definitely done a lot of traveling because of that. I was also able to go to Haiti with my dad. Last year I went to Germany for an exchange program. I think with all of the travels that I have done, it has made me realize a lot more than I would have just being here.
