Being a legacy from Auburn University in which my father graduated, Auburn has always been in my blood. But to actually have the moment to graduate is a moment in life I’ll never forget.

Auburn University has taught me the meaning of hard work and that I can count only on what I earn. Earning my degree carried such value that I had to understand that this is bigger than me. In that understanding, it has allowed for me to overcome adversity, always show compassion towards others, and to stay determined in accomplishing your goals. With the help of God and valuable life lessons from Auburn, it has given me the opportunity to work in Washington D.C. and expand my horizons within the healthcare sector.

I will always love and support Auburn University — it has shaped and molded me to the woman I am today. The amazing friendships and memories will always be in my heart!!!

I BELIEVE IN AUBURN AND LOVE IT!!!
