What is something you’re looking forward to next year at Rowan?

Some things I look forward to next year at Rowan are learning many different and complex subjects, making new friendships and exploring the area.

What is one activity, club, sport or hobby that you did in high school that you’d like to continue with at Rowan?

I played volleyball all four years in high school so I would love to continue playing in college. I don’t think I’ll compete, but it’s always an option.

How or why did you choose your major?​                                                        

I chose my major because my mom is a registered nurse. She’s been a registered nurse for over 25 years and she has been in every department possible. Now she is a school nurse.

Growing up, she was always talking about what happened at work, what happens when you don’t take care of yourself, and what drugs can do to the human body. So I kind of ran with it and tested it out when I took Human Anatomy And Physiology in high school. When I realized I enjoyed the class and it was easy for me, I decided that I wanted to go into the medical field. Since I love children, I thought why not combine the two and be a pediatrician. That’s how I chose my major.

How did you get to know campus?                                                                         

I joined the Rowan family right when everything was closing because of COVID-19 so everything that I know is from online. Since everything is changing I’m curious as to what the in-person experience will be like but I’m excited to see what it holds.

What music do you like?                                                                                        
As far as music, I am in love with music and I love variety. Old, new, throwbacks, R&B, Rap, Hip-Hop, Socca, Pop, etc. I’m always willing to try new music so the list just keeps expanding.

Night owl or morning person?                                                                               
I am 1000% a night owl. I’m -1000% a morning person. Everyone that knows me knows better than to wake me up in the morning without food and coffee or juice.

Why Rowan?​​                                                                                                              
I chose Rowan because I heard it’s a great school and I recently moved to the area. But, before choosing Rowan I drove through the campus a little and I liked it. It was alive and I wanted to be a part of it. I feel like that is how you should start the next chapter of your life — finding something that seduces you to want more.
