What is one action you have taken to connect on campus?

I studied abroad in Rwanda with the ALEC Department and I am a member of Sigma Alpha Sorority. Off campus, I have had two internships. One was with the Nebraska Corn Board where I worked in communications and market development. The other was with Gowan USA where I worked in agricultural chemical sales.

What is one experience form the department or your classes that has been impactful?

Studying abroad to Rwanda with the department absolutely changed my outlook on how I view the world and I changed my major to leadership because of this trip!

ALEC 302: Dynamics of Effective Leadership and ALEC 466: Leadership & Diversity have been two classes that have challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and have given me some of the biggest learning experiences.

How would you describe the ALEC Department?

I love the ALEC department, because students and faculty are willing to challenge you to become the best person I can be. They believe that we can make a difference in this world.

What are your future plans?

I am currently looking at graduate programs in agricultural leadership throughout the country and at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. If not graduate school, I am also looking for jobs in Human Resources and agronomic research.
