Unit/Hall: Jarrett Units Q/R
Hometown: Muleshoe, Texas
What I Love About WT: WTAMU is like the Baby Bear's porridge and bed; it is perfect! If WT were any larger, it would be too impersonal; any smaller, it wouldn't be an awesome learning experience. I love everything about the West Texas A&M campus. The professors care way beyond what's expected, the campus is beautiful, and most of all the people give it heart.
Why I Love Living On Campus: When you live on campus, you are constantly surrounded by people; although sometimes frustrating and overwhelming, I would not have it any other way. Living on campus makes you grow exponentially as a person. Perhaps best of all, it almost forces friendships with people you may have nothing in common with, and in my opinion those are the best and most rewarding friendships.
Why I'm Excited to be an RA: Having the privilege of being an RA is something almost completely indescribable. I get to help people grow, and there simply is not anything more rewarding on this earth to me than that. I have the opportunity to create an environment...a home. I get to take somebody into a new place in their life and often get to help them build who they want to be, sometimes even reconstruct who they want to be. I would do anything for them.

I REALLY like being around people and hanging out with them. Also, living in Jarrett is amazing! There are so many people who go into the lobby and chill.
Why I'm Excited to be an RA: I am so stoked to be an RA, because my own RA impacted me so much that I want to do the same for my residents. I am excited to get to know them on a personal level and help them find who they are as a person.

Why I'm Excited to be an RA: Growing up my friends were treated like my cousins and my cousins were like my brothers and sisters.

Being on campus, specifically Jarrett Hall, I wish to make that the ethos of where I am at.
