What is something that most people don’t  know about you?

Most people don’t know that I love to draw and paint.


What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?


My most meaningful service experience was an event called “The Big Event”. The Big Event allowed students at Montevallo to serve those in the community by cleaning up their neighborhood.
