What do you want to be when you grow up?

A Professor

What’s been your favorite course at Butler so far and why?

HN300: The Performance of Gender with Dr. Charlesworth. The class pushed me to think in new ways and tackle the very real yet incredibly fabricated concept of gender, and gave approaches to conduct similar interrogations for other constructs. It made me feel in charge of my own destiny in some very abstract way.

What is it like to be a part of the Butler Community? Who is your Butler Community?

Being part of the Butler Community is like never leaving home. Someone always has your back. Everyone from my Greek house and my closest friends to my professors and my classmates form my community.

How will your Butler experience help you after graduation?

My Butler experience will help me because I never had my punches pulled. I am both supported and pushed, and can take comfort in knowing that my accomplishments are my own. I know I will be prepared to compete at any level after I leave here.

What’s your favorite memory of your Butler experience, so far?

Being an AOC Teambuilder has been my best memory so far. Getting to personally know first-year students and understanding their goals, motivations, and stories is something I will always be grateful for and never forget.

What were your primary factors in making your college decision?

I wanted somewhere that would give me a good platform for a variety of opportunities.  I was undecided when applying to schools and had no idea where I wanted to go in the future and I wasn’t comfortable locking myself in a particular path. Butler had the ability to prepare me for anything I wanted to do and to do so very well.

What makes you most proud to be a Bulldog?

The pride that students have in each other and our achievements makes me proud to be a Bulldog. Everyone supports everyone else, and it’s hard to not be proud of that.

What does the Butler Way mean to you?

The Butler Way is doing what you can where you can and always giving your best effort (whatever that might mean in the situation). It’s knowing that people are there for you but also being there for yourself. It’s something that is almost impossible to quantify, yet almost everyone understands.
