At Troy University, I have been given every opportunity to succeed and grow as a leader. The faculty and staff believe in their students. This is what kept me believing in myself. Here I have a name, and I'm not just a number. As an education major, I know I have chosen the best university for me. I just completed my student teaching and was so prepared to enter the classroom. I owe so much of this to my professors, but also to those I have had the privilege to meet throughout my time at TROY. My exposure to people from all walks of life has allowed me to learn so much and effectively communicate with those who have backgrounds different from my own. Troy University is my home away from home, and I am proud that I will carry such a great love for this University throughout the rest of my life.
