When I stepped foot on Sam Houston's campus three years ago I had big dreams and goals, but I did not know how I was going to accomplish them. As a first generation student, I didn't know much but I knew that there were plenty of resources on campus to help me grow as a student leader. I hit the ground running by serving as SAMbassador my freshmen year! Yes, little me started as a tour guide my first year at Sam while I was still learning the campus myself. While attending Sam I've had the pleasure of being a SAMbassador, emceeing various campus events, being apart of the eboard for Black Student Alliance, and serving as an Orange Key! I want people to know that it's not about where you come from, but what you bring to the table! The world is yours! You just have to trust your instinct, step out of your comfort zone, and flip your hair a couple of times!
