Briefly tell us about yourself (e.g. hometown, family, hobbies, favorite BYU courses, intended profession)
I am from Dallas, Texas. My intended profession is to become an infectious disease doctor, and my favorite hobby is to craft things (scrapbooks, food, various art forms, etc.).
Who were your greatest supporters while earning this degree?
My greatest supporters while earning my degree have been my family, especially my husband. Throughout every test and essay he has kept me motivated and focused so that I got the best grade possible.
What advice do you have for incoming freshmen at BYU?
My advice for incoming freshman is to regularly check the Learning Suite schedule so there are no surprises, and to make a to do list a week in advance. I make my to do list a week out, then on those days I do what I have scheduled and then I get to reward myself with relaxation. Making a to do list will ensure you are ahead of your homework and have adequate time to study for tests.
How has your experience at BYU prepared you for the rest of your life?
BYU has taught me the importance of setting a goal and how to work to achieve that goal. Scheduling my days in advance ensures I am productive and understand my timeline. For the future, whenever I have a project, I will be sure to create a schedule and work hard to reach my end goal.
