On her why: I felt that, through LFNC, I would be able to give back to the state and community that gave me so much. I am also here because I want to make connections and build relationships with a diverse group of people. Growing up, I was taught that it’s about who you know and the relationships you build. I know that through LFNC, I am going to build countless lasting relationships that will provide me with many unique perspectives.
