How does it feel to be the first member of your family to attend college?
Honestly, it feels like I’m living in a dream every day that I wake up. I feel so humbled and motivated to fulfill the goals that I’ve established for myself.

What piece of advice would you share with an incoming first-generation college student?
Time doesn’t stop so why should you. In the midst of this experience always walk with your head up and never be afraid to ask for help.

Any advice you would share with the Wichita State community working with first-generation students?
You are about to be a part of something special and your presence is valuable. Those words of encouragement from a faculty member fill our hearts with joy.

What do you hope to do after you graduate from Wichita State?
I plan to pursue my dreams of playing in the NBA. I also hope to establish a great career in the Tech world by creating video games and designing software that improves day-to-day life.
