President of Vandy Taal

Finding Her Voice:

I joined Vandy Taal at the beginning of my sophomore year. Joining an acapella group was completely nerve racking for me but with the encouragement of my friends, we all auditioned together and it has been a great experience. Not only have I really found my voice, literally, in the organization but I have met and become friends with so many other students of various cultural backgrounds. I’m so excited for this upcoming year.

Tips for making the most of your time at Vanderbilt:

  1. Get involved with anything and everything that interests you.
  2. Take on leadership roles in activities that you have a passion for.
  3. Have fun! Vanderbilt is more than just classes, it’s a community with something for everyone.
