What does graduating from the Mizzou School of Health Professions mean to you?
Graduating from the Mizzou School of Health Professions is one of those special milestones that rarely come up. I think it’s the mark of a chapter in my life where I grew the most and developed personally to become a more well-rounded leader and friend. I see it as the launching pad and foundation for what I will continue to build upon for the rest of my life.

Health Sciences 3300–Public Health Principles, Practice, and Education
What activities have you been involved in along the way?
While at Mizzou, I have been involved with the School of Health Professions Student Ambassador team, been an active member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, and served as leadership team president for a campus ministry called Student Mobilization
Who helped you during your college journey?
My parents have offered the best support and encouragement that anyone could ask for. Also, my friend Phil helped me to navigate what it looks like to pursue my faith in college and live to make a purpose in the lives of others.
What memories stand out from your time at Mizzou?
The memories that stand out the most are growing in my faith while at college, being involved with Homecoming through my fraternity for the past three years, and meeting my best friends within my fraternity.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation, I will be going on staff with a campus ministry in the Philippines!
What advice do you have for current and future students?
You make the most out of college by engaging with others in a meaningful and purposeful way. Step out of your comfort to be more vulnerable and intentional with how you spend your time, and invest well into growth opportunities.
