Major: Medicine, Health & Society
Why did you choose to attend Vanderbilt?
The ability to come to a fun city like Nashville, ability to compete among the best athletically, and setting myself up for success in life beyond football.
What are your career goals?
I want to find a career that ultimately makes my family and I happy.
What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?
I think that staying organized is key for success, and being as proactive as possible on assignments allows you to not be stressed out from trying to get things turned in at the last second.
How do you manage your demanding schedule?
I think that it is important to find a short period of time every day to do something that gets my mind off of all the things I need to get done, and it allows me to not get overwhelmed by the busy schedule. Also, just trying to focus on one thing at a time is important when I have a lot to do.
What is your ritual before taking a test?
Getting a decent night of sleep before and having a cup of coffee always helps me stay as focused as possible.
