Ask me about: I love all things health/wellness/food, I get excited about any art or DIY project, and I love to talk about leadership development/lessons! We can watch TED Talks for days!
“I applied to FLEG for the initial sole purpose of learning how to be an effective leader. I’ve always been passionate about leadership and making a difference, and I thought that FLEG would be a great medium for me to share my passions and work alongside other leaders to get stuff done. Little did I know how much more I would get out of this organization besides just basic leadership skills. I have learned about myself in so many ways, whether it comes to my interpersonal communication, tendencies, skills, or even just the type of human I want to be in this big world. FLEG has allowed me to discover my true passions beyond the surface level; because of this organization, I uncovered one of my best skills – helping people develop as leaders. Most importantly, FLEG has given me my home away from home. I know for a fact that I can rely on my FLEG team for anything and everything. Over the past two years, I’ve grown so close to my FLEG family, inside and outside of the assembly room.
I’ve come from being an Involvement Affairs committee member to Involvement Affairs Director, to finally president of this incredible group – for this, I could not be more grateful or excited. In my last semester as president, I am fully committed to pushing FLEG to be THE resource for freshman engineers of all backgrounds. I am confident that our group is only getting better every year, guiding freshman engineers by providing more resources, serving our university, creating more leaders, and inspiring all to try to make an impact on the world.”
Executive Vice President
“When I applied to FLEG, it was on a whim because I didn’t think I’d be accepted. Almost three years later, and serving as the Executive Vice President, FLEG has opened doors and created bonds for me that I least expected. My original goal was to further my professional development. While that goal has continued, I’ve been able to work alongside talented peers and develop good friendships. Seeing how FLEG allowed my peers to create and excel in their own paths, I strive to bring that success in myself and those around me in the college of engineering. “
Administrative Vice President
“To me, FLEG is a family that is always there to support each other and the college. I’ve grown professionally through info sessions and fall corporate formal, but most importantly I’ve grown personally. Looking back at where I was at the beginning of freshman year to the end of freshman year, I can feel myself becoming more selfless and aware of the needs of those around me. Putting on events for other freshmen was a highlight of my freshmen year, and now I love seeing the new freshmen grow and become better leaders during their time here.”
“For me, FLEG means an opportunity for freshman to come into the college of engineering to provide events and resources to their fellow freshman, while simultaneously growing themselves through leadership development put on internally. To come in as a freshman and immediately have a network of friends to grow you is an incredible resource. FLEG has impacted me by providing a network of friends, faculty, and business professionals that always uplift me to pursue my best and push me to grow in areas I am weak.”
“FLEG gave me the opportunity to grow in the leader I aspired to be, guide others and inspire people to follow their passions.”
