College Ambassador - Michigan State University, Senior Year
Tell us about yourself? I am a senior at Michigan State University studying elementary education and child development. I spend my summers up north in Harbor Springs, MI, where I get to enjoy the beach everyday. I love traveling and being with my family. You can always find me with a smile on my face!
What part of USA Palm peaked your interest? I love the bright colors and classic looks and prints.
How do you Enjoy the Palm Life? Although I am from Michigan, the beach has always been an important part of my life. Whether it's spending summer vacations at my cottage on the shore of Little Traverse Bay (Lake Michigan) or family vacations to Aruba, I have always felt happiest and calmest by a beach.
What sports or activities do you participate in? Tennis instructor, love doing Zumba, and recreational running
What is your favorite vacation spot? Why? Aruba, I started going when I was really young. My family always goes after Christmas because we believe being by a beach and getting sun is important to get through the cold winters. There's nothing more I love than laying out and listening to the sound of the ocean waves, or taking a walk on the beach with the warm sand under my toes.
Why do you think you are a good USA Palm Ambassador? My mom has taught me the importance of not just representing yourself respectfully, but being someone that others looks up to. Whether it's smiling at others, dressing my best, or trying my hardest, the qualities that make me a genuine person are all qualities that are the foundation to a good USA Palm Amabassador. From the social media viewpoint, I have always been aware of what I post and how that represents me and shows what I want others to know. I love my bright colors, classic styles, and inner southern belle style. As a senior at Michigan State, I have made a lot of connections in and out of Greek Life, where styles that USA PALM would be very popular.
How will you make the Palm Life better? I am very creative and love thinking of new ideas as I flip through magazines of my favorite brands. Although I'm not a fashion major, my sense of style has been very recognizable and loved throughout my life. As times are changing, it's important to stay on top of any changes in media, advertising, etc., and I know I have a great eye for it.
What else should we know about you? I seriously love laughing, so I know I would be a fun person to work with. I work in retail over the summer in Harbor Springs at a store called "Harbor Wear". It sells clothes with Harbor Springs/Lake Michigan on it. Since working there, I have helped my boss bring in Comfort Colors tees since I know how popular they are with my generation. It has been a huge success, and each summer I strive to bring in new and bright ideas to the store.
