University of Alabama at Birmingham
Bachelor of Science, Accounting
While attending UAB I obtained a 3.88 GPA while being a student-athlete. I have received numerous awards from Conference USA based on academic excellence and continue to achieve academic excellence. Through my experience as a college athlete I have learned many lessons on respect, discipline, timeliness, dedication, and leadership. These lessons have shaped me in a very beneficial way.
I am one of the representatives for the Student Athlete Advisory Committee at UAB. In this position, I help organize events and volunteer opportunities in the community for the student athlete body. SAAC offers the ability to lead others and find solutions to problems in the community. One of the events that I created was to feed the homeless in the 5 Points area of Birmingham. Each student-athlete had a couple sandwiches and handed them out to the homeless and the food shelter. This opportunity taught us about the importance of giving back and helping others.
