Q: Why did you choose LSU?
A: I choose LSU because I wanted to attend a school that I knew would have a similar culture and environment as my home town New Orleans. I wanted a college that I could feel safe and comfortable in, as well as a student body that would be hospitable.
Q: Why did you choose Kinesiology/Pre-Med as your major?
A: I choose my major because it offered me a different route to Pre Med, as well as the opportunity to learn so much about the human body. I wanted a major that would allow me the ability to interact with people while learning at the same time.

Q: What advice would you give to someone contemplating your major?
A: I would advise someone contemplating my major to make sure you put forth 110% effort in every class. There are some challenging courses, but if it’s truly what you want, then there is nothing that you can’t accomplish. Also, make sure to consider every piece of advice you receive from those trying to help you advance in your studies; any advice that could be beneficial to you should never be ignored.
Q: What is something that surprised you about LSU or CHSE?
A: Something that surprised me was how helpful and friendly the CHSE community is. Whether it was a faculty member or a student, they have always been a great asset to me.
Q: What do you plan to do with your degree once you graduate?
