"I plan on traveling the world as an anthropological nurse to help identify victims in mass graves. I also plan on coming back one day to this university to teach aspiring Nursing students like myself."

Message for my Yorktown Senior HS self

"I know you slacked off your freshman year and half of senior year and I can tell you know that that wasn't the best idea. Always work your hardest and never stop for anyone."

#RedWolfNation is...

"My life. My dream. Everything to me."

Biggest Surprise about IU East
