Why did you decide to attend Lakeland University? Lakeland treats you like a person and not another number. It's a home away from home.

What is one thing you want everyone to know about Lakeland University? I want others to know that just because this is a small school, we are a family here. Nothing or no one goes unnoticed here. We are treated like people and not just a number, and that shows that everyone is a part of the family.

How do you want to impact someone else's life as a young professional? I want my siblings to be able to look up to me and have a positive role model. It is important to me that my siblings become great in whatever endeavor they pursue. If that means they (Kendall, Charlize) look up to me, I'm fine with being the only person they want to be "just like."

How will the Gala scholarship impact your future? This scholarship will take away any financial burden. Since I want to become a doctor in the future, I won't have to do more borrowing and I can save for medical school. My goal is to study on scholarship at Case Western Reserve Medical School.
