Favorite NMSU Experience / What advice do you have for other students? My favorite NMSU experience would be the branding ceremony. It was a fun and exciting experience where I met so many great people. My advice for other students is to always show up to class. If you happen to be absent from a class, never go to your professor and ask, "did I miss anything?" You should already know that you missed everything.
Who is your biggest role model? My biggest role model is my dad. He has always been there for me and is always supportive in anything that I do. Throughout my life he's shown me how to work hard for what I want and to never give up.
