As a student, where did you leave your mark on campus?

As a student I was highly involved in my sorority, Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc., and also with the Hispanic American Student Association (H.A.S.A.). One event that I loved volunteering in was T.R.E.E. Conference, which takes place every November and is the largest Conference for Hispanic High School students in the state of Oklahoma. In this conference they get to learn everything from Financial Aid to the process of applying to college. T.R.E.E. Conference is an event that will always be close to my heart.

Define the Sooner Family in your own words.

For me, the Sooner Family means people that I created relationships with when I was an undergrad that are still there for me till this day. As a non-traditional and first generation college student it was important for me to build my own support system that would help me get through college. The people that were part of my journey are definitely people that I can call family and that I will always be thankful for.

When was the moment you felt the greatest Sooner pride?

In 2013, I was able to attend the Bedlam game at the Boone Pickens Stadium. OSU was beating us and in the last two minutes OU scored two touchdowns. It was a great day to be a Sooner in Oklahoma State's territory.

What was the greatest gift you took with you after graduation?

The 3 years 1/2 I spent at The University of Oklahoma was the greatest gift that I will cherish for a lifetime. I was able to make the best memories with people that I love and I wouldn't change that for the world.

Reveal one secret about campus.

The Student life office in the Union always has snacks. Go and check out what all Student life has to offer and on the way out, get some snacks. They never run out.

What is your favorite OU tradition?

My favorite tradition would be attending football games and being able to wear my cowgirl boots with my crimson and cream outfit.

What advice do you have for prospective students?

The best advice I can give prospective students is to get involved and make connections through out their undergrad years. You will be amazed in the results you get when you start connecting with people you know after graduation.
