What does Strong Sister, Silly Sister, Inc. mean to you?
Strong Sister, Silly Sister Inc. (SSSS) means setting the proper foundation and holding myself to high ethical, personal, and professional standards. SSSS helped me set a firm foundation as an underclass student at Purdue that I carried all the way to graduation, and even now beyond. It taught me to always walk with my head held high, brand myself in positive ways, shine a light wherever I go, and truly be a strong sister.

How has Strong Sister, Silly Sister, Inc. helped you?
SSSS has helped me in every season of life. The values and principles taught in the program are instrumental and aided in my growth and development spiritually, personally, and professionally throughout my time at Purdue, and now as a graduate.

How do you shine your light on our world (How do you uplift others)?
My faith is of utmost importance to me. I shine my light by encouraging others in the same way Jesus did.

I look to be a light wherever I go, have a radiant spirit, and boldly reflect Jesus Christ.
What is your current career?
During the summer of 2018, I interned with the Boston Red Sox Organization in Boston, Massachusetts where I was in their highly competitive Junior Sales Academy selling season tickets and partial plans to Red Sox fans. After the academy, I will start graduate school at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee in their Graduate Sports Administration Program. After the two years, I pray to be on my way as a leader in intercollegiate or professional athletics while still being able to provide mentoring and guidance to those involved in SSSS.
