About Me: I enjoy giving back and helping others, so I saw being a Peer Leader as the right fit for me. I can aid students in their social and academic transition to college, and also be there to answer any questions they may have along the way. Being a peer leader has helped me improve my communication, time management, and leadership skills. Personally, I enjoy any outdoors activity, particularly rock climbing. I grew up in the Carolinas, and began my journey at Austin Peay when I moved to Nashville with my family.
