Why did you choose Belmont? The Christian atmosphere was a major selling point for me. The ability to add education with religion and to be able to grow in both areas was something I was looking for. Belmont is also located, in my opinion, in one of the best places in the country. The opportunities Nashville presents is something no other city provides. The friendliness of this community and the welcoming vibe you get is another thing that drew to this community as well as Belmont itself.
Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide? I love Belmont. With all of my heart, I can honestly say that it is one of the greatest places and I have been so blessed to be apart of this university. Being a tour guide I get to share my love for Belmont and all the amazing opportunities it provides for me.
What is your favorite on-campus event? One of my favorite events on-campus is the Battle of the Bands at the beginning of the year. It's a great way to showcase Belmont’s talent and show the incoming freshman what Belmont is all about. Plus it's a great way to meet people while listening to great music!
What is your favorite movie? My favorite movie is Tangled. I love Disney movies and this recent one has stolen my heart!
What is your favorite song & artist/band? Favorite song- Roar by Katy Perry. I mean its Katy Perry what’s not to like? Favorite band- Jonas Brothers...enough said.
What would you want to be your last meal on earth? BREAD. I love all types of bread but mainly French bread.
What is your favorite Nashville experience? I got to go to the Grammy nomination concert last year and it was amazing. I got to hold Taylor Swift’s hand and be ten feet from Adam Levine, like nothing can really top that.
What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont? My dream career is to be able to plan the CMA awards as well as the CMA Music festival- so to work for CMA in the events department.
What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why? I took Event Planning last year and loved it. To take a class that was directly related to what I wanted to do was amazing. We also had the ability to plan and carry out an event, which was direct insight on how to do it. Overall it was a great class!
If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say? Always be true to who you are because that's what makes you special.
