Why did you choose Belmont? From the minute I got to Belmont, I felt like the community was my home and everyone was so friendly. Plus, since I had the opportunity to pick anywhere in the country to go to school, why not live in a cool city like Nashville!

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide? Being a tour guide allows me to interact with students and families that are going through similar journeys that I was on not too long ago. It makes me excited to help them out in their college searches and to be able assist people for whatever questions they may have.

What is your favorite on-campus event? Basketball season. All of it.

What is your favorite movie? Love Actually or The Devil Wears Prada.

What is your favorite song & artist/band? I don’t have one favorite song, but I love pretty much anything by John Mayer.

What would you want to be your last meal on earth? A three-course meal starting with McDonald’s chicken nugget Happy Meal, followed by Santa Maria Style Tri-Tip BBQ and Lucky Charms to top it all off.

What is your favorite Nashville experience? Seeing Ed Sheeran perform at the Ryman Auditorium my freshman year. It was the best concert EVER

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont? Being an entertainment journalist for E! News or People Magazine.

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why? Mass Media & Society because we get to learn about all different types of media and my teacher was hilarious! Boom. 

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say? Keep your options open and explore all of the colleges you’re interested in. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and apply.
