Favorite NMSU Experience/ What advice do you have for other students The best advice I could give to other students is to get involved in something your first semester on campus. Don't be afraid of not fitting in or anything. Get out of your comfort zone because that's when you grow the most as a person. I regret not getting involved my freshman year, but the moment I got out of my comfort zone was the best time of my life.

Who is your biggest role model: My biggest role model is my grandma. Her and my grandpa were able to start a salvage yard company out of nothing and grew it to be one of the largest in the state until they were bought out. Not only were they able to do that but they were also able to start another company that rents out airplane hangars at a couple small airports. Both their business ventures were successful yet scary. And all in that time, my grandma kept her focus on God and never lost sight of the real goal - sharing her love for Him.

What is your favorite quote: My favorite quote is "Don't waste energy trying to cover up failure. Learn from your failures and go onto the next challenge. It's okay to fail. If you're not failing, you're not growing." ~H. Stanley Judd

Favorite music artist: Carrie Underwood or Aaron Watson.

Favorite TV Show: The Ranch.

Favorite Snack: French fries.

Favorite extracurricular activity: Working out or riding horses.

What would your superpower be: Give people the courage to face their fears, no matter how scary they are.
