  1. What is your favorite thing about freshman year so far?

I would say my favorite thing so far has been meeting so many new people!!! And the way the older girls in adpi have loved me so well! They have made my transition so much easier and have shown Jesus through their actions every day! 

2. Why did you choose to come to Auburn?

Well…… both my parents went to Alabama but they are HUGE auburn fans. They would dress me and my twin, Harper, up in cheerleading uniforms and pull us in a wagon up and down our neighborhood. So, it has always been the dream to come to Auburn. When I finally took the tour it just felt like home!!

3. If you had to be a celebrity for a day, who would it be?

LILY JAMES!!! Not a lot of people know of her but she is a British actress who was in my favorite movie Cinderella. She just seems so regal and elegant:)

4. What was the best piece of advice you received before coming to college?

I guess my best piece of advice I got was not before college but during it. I am naturally a very anxious person I like everything to be in its place and order. So, when college rolled around I was freaking out because everything was changing. The first week of classes came and I was on the phone with my mom and was freaking out and she said that all of the grades, friends, and activities are so little compared to the Lord and to not glorify those things because they are not worthy of it.  

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? 

England definitely England. I am obsessed with the royal family!! To be in the same country as Kate Middleton would be an honor!
