Why did you choose to come to UMR? I chose UMR because of the unique opportunities available due to small class sizes, the JustASK desk and proximity to Mayo Clinic. I knew I wanted to attend a smaller school where I could build relationships with peers, have small class sizes and participate in unique research opportunities.

How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? I based my Capstone on the idea of stepping out of my comfort zone where I could grow and learn the most. The activities I participated in taught me how to manage my time and energy to ensure I could give my best to each project. My Capstone projects helped me build confidence in my leadership skills through guiding my research project, guiding children through activities and presenting in front of my classmates.
