I went to high school at Oologah-Talala Public Schools. I graduated ranked first in my class and received the Valedictorian award. I am a second-year civil engineering student. I am currently a resident assistant at the University of Arkansas campus. I am a Lead Hog adviser and mentor, the University of Arkansas Chapter of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society treasurer, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society Regional Representative, and National Residence Hall Honorary Director of Administration and Finance. I will be studying abroad this summer to Italy and hopefully studying abroad next spring to Australia. This past summer I participated in a Research Experience for Undergraduates at the University of Arkansas. There, I experimented to find an extraction method to removed Dicamba herbicide from soybean biomasses. After graduation, I am hoping to move to Houston to be closer to my sister and begin my career. For my career, I want to focus my degree towards the environmental side of civil engineering.
