Why you chose to attend NC State: I have a lot of family that has attended NC State, so I have been raised to love it. Ever since I was young I knew I wanted to attend NC State; I love the atmosphere and I knew it was where I belong.
Why you chose to be a part of the Cheer program/family at NC State: I grew up watching the NC State cheerleaders at games when I was younger, and I admired them so much. I used to have my own uniform when I was little that I would wear to games, and I have a picture with one of the cheerleaders. Seeing all of the stuff that the cheerleaders did, I became instantly hooked and determined to be a part of it one day.

Favorite hobby outside of NC State Cheer: Going to the beach and to the lake.
