  • Adventurous
  • Innovative
  • Limitless 

Do you have a favorite Texas A&M Aggie Core Value?

  • Selfless Service. To whom much is given, much is required.
  • Integrity. What you do when no one is watching is important.
What was your favorite tv show growing up?
  • The Golden Girls. I've been watching this show since I was single digits. I love the feistiness of the ladies, and what has stuck with me is that there is still life after life's trials.
  • M*A*S*H. I got to stay up late to watch this show, and that was the best. It was a good memory of spending time with my Mom.
  • A Different World. I got to dream with this show. Peeking into college life was exciting and rescued me from my neighborhood and the monotony. 
If you could keep only three apps on your phone, what would they be?
