My love of inventing and creating with hopes of becoming an entrepreneur led me to the College of Business in the Spring of 2015. When I first began my journey at the COB, I was amazed by the resources and opportunities available to students within the College.

As a College of Business student, I am not only surrounded by superb fellow students and faculty but outstanding chances to improve my professional self through numerous events because of donor support. The first Student to Career event I attended was the Etiquette Dinner. In preparation for the Etiquette Dinner I improved my resume with the help of Student to Career's staff, visited the Professional Clothes Closet to select the perfect professional outfit, and attended workshops to learn about networking and proper dining etiquette. I am grateful for all the professionals that make the Etiquette Dinner such a success. I would like to personally thank each of them for spending their time interacting with students who aspire to also become such experienced and supportive professionals.

I applied in hopes of being selected as a COB Student Ambassador, because I hoped to represent the COB not only to other students and other colleges within TTU, but other universities as well. As a current Student Ambassador I enjoy getting to spend time with students sharing what each opportunity has in store for them, and working to assist each event throughout the school year.

One of my favorite COB events to date was the 2015 Fall Celebration Dinner with the keynote speaker from ABC's "Shark Tank," Barbara Corcoran! My love of entrepreneurship led me to compete in the TTU EagleWorks competition both of my years here at Tech, and after going through the process of taking an idea from conception through judged pitches, I was elated to learn that such a prestigious entrepreneur would get to visit our outstanding college and inspire other students to pursue their passions. A dream came true for me that evening, and it wouldn't have been possible without the continual support of our College's donors.

Not only is the College of Business admired across campus, it and all of the events held all year impress students and professionals outside of TTU, and I am thankful for the opportunity to be an Ambassador to the best College and programs by far!
