Major: Business Liberal Arts

About Me:  I consider myself to be a very respectful, hardworking, and dedicated person when it comes to school, clubs, or organizations.  I believe in servant leadership and my objective is to serve the student body to the best of ability.  Three things that I do believe in is 
1.learning from the past,
2. live in the present, and 
3. prepare for the future.  
I believe that with my coordinated team and strategic planning, it will lead to action.  At RVCC, I've been heavily involved in school clubs and organizations:  I was one of the founding executive officers with Enactus (when it started out as SIFE); I was on the SGA/PTK Leadership Series planning committee; a Senator of Student Government; I served on the Model Minority panel, and now on the presidential search committee.
