Why did you choose Belmont?
I chose Belmont for a thousand reasons but I think perhaps the greatest of these was in thinking of and reflecting on Romans 12. I really thought a lot about how I could most greatly offer my life as a living sacrifice and offering to God in my years in college. Ultimately I saw that Belmont had the most opportunities to offer compared to the other schools I was looking at. The community, location, and academic programs reflected this truth.

Why did you choose to be a Tour Guide?
I am passionate about both Belmont and new people! What better place is there to combine the two? I also have a heart for students in the process of deciding on post-secondary education because I had a particularly challenging time with the decision myself.

What is your favorite on-campus event?
Any Pembroke Hall event is the best event you'll find on campus!

What is your favorite movie?
500 Days of Summer is pretty neat!

What is your favorite song & artist/band?
Brandon Heath could write the soundtrack to my life. I don't know if I could decide on a favorite song.

What would you want to be your last meal on earth?
I would want my last meal on earth to be with good company! Food is good but I've always been far more interested in the people I'm eating with.

What is your favorite Nashville experience?
Any show you can catch at The Ryman is really an amazing experience. Also snagging some Hattie B's hot chicken is pretty life changing.

What is your dream career after graduating from Belmont?
I want to be a professional best friend! I'm thinking that will take me somewhere in ministry!

What is your favorite class that you have taken at Belmont and why?
Christian Doctrine is definitely a class that sticks out. It was really thought provoking and it was also quite beautiful to reflect on where the whole church actually has unity in belief.

If you could go back in time and give advice about college to 16-17 year old you, what would you say?
Remember that God doesn't call the qualified but rather qualifies the called. You may have a dream or desire that God has given you that you don't think you can achieve. I would advise to pursue what is on your heart, and if it truly is what God has for your life, he will qualify you for it.
