La Pine, OR
Why did you choose Oregon Tech?
I chose Oregon Tech for a few reasons. The education I would receive would be of high quality due to small class sizes that would allow me to be a person in a classroom and not just a number. It was also close to home, and the community in Klamath Falls that supports the athletics at Oregon Tech is phenomenal.
What do you like best about your major?
The students and professors in the communication major are incredibly supportive and friendly. I have developed great relationships with my classmates and professors. The people in the communication major have really made it a great experience for me and made the hard work enjoyable.
What clubs or activities are you involved with?
I play basketball for the Lady Owls and I participate in Track & Field at Oregon Tech. I am also involved in SIC (students in communication).
What career do you hope to have after you graduate from Oregon Tech?
I hope to get my masters in education and become a high school history teacher and basketball coach.
What would you say to the donor or donors who support Oregon Tech. What does their support mean to you?
The support of the donors have made it possible for me to have a life changing experience here at Oregon Tech. They have allowed me to grow into the person that I am today, which is a role model for young girls who hope to one day play collegiate sports. All I have to say is thank you, I owe them the utmost gratitude for my experience here at Tech.
How do you want to impact the lives of other people in the future?
As I said earlier, I want to be a role model for young girls not only in Klamath Falls, but young girls who come from small towns. It doesn't matter where you come from as long as you are dedicated and willing to work hard both on the court and in the classroom. Since I hope to become a teacher, I will interact with teenage kids every day. I want them to know that they can get a great education and enjoy every minute of it along the way. I hope to inspire future generations to achieve greatness.
