{Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark!}

When I was 6 years old I was afraid of the dark. I watched a freaky television show with my neighbors and I thought a ghost was trying on my clothes in my sleep. I would cry, sweat, and scream if I saw a shadow move. This fear didn’t stop until I was probably 12…

{Mentee-be}

Being a mentor to Lauryn this year has surpassed my expectations, yet was nothing I expected. I never really saw myself being able to guide another person through every aspect of college when I had barely figured it out myself. With Lauryn being the bright and bubbly souls she is, she made the title of…

{Zeta, Love, and Mine}

As I have mentioned in previous posts, my second year here at CMU incorporated many firsts for me. One of them was joining the Gamma Omicron chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha. It is difficult for me to even fathom into words how much joining a sorority has shaped me so immensely in such little time, but…

{Communication in Leadership}

I am starting a bit of a trend here with these class reflections, so I apologize for that. However, I am so excited to share with you all my experiences that I have been able to grow and learn from throughout my time as a student in my Communication and Leadership class with my cohort…

{SOC 221 Reflection}

Throughout my time here at CMU, I have endless opportunities to educate myself on issues going on in the world. Specific to the Leadership Institute here on campus, being involved in programs like LAS has led me to take the course SOC 221, which is titled social problems. This class has introduced me to a new…

{PHL 118 Reflection}

For my Leadership Advancement Scholarship we are required to take a variety of courses that push us to graduate as comprehensive, well-rounded leaders- one of them being a philosophy class focusing on moral problems. As majority of my cohort took this class together in the fall, I ended up taking it in the spring due…

{S P A R K}

Last fall I was involved in a program called Spark Leadership. As a participant going through the process, I had a lot of fun being able to explore who I was as a leader and what my goals were as a college student. By spring of my freshmen year, I recognized the impact that these…

{Leadership Symposium}

This spring I was informed that I was chosen to chair the Leadership Institute’s 20th Anniversary come fall 2017 along side of my co-chair, Harrison Watts. Excited and honored as ever to take on this role, little did either of us know that at this event would be the official changing of the Leadership Institute’s…

{Fall Recruitment 2017}

Going into college, I always knew that I wanted to go through formal recruitment and join a sorority. Freshmen, year, I was restricted from doing so because I was a member of Central Michigan University’s dance team. Although I have absolutely no regrets being a member of the dance team, I was so excited to…

{A New Chapter}

Hi friends! First things first, I want to apologize for the lack of updates lately, as I have been extremely busy! However, (lucky you) I am here today to catch you all up! This summer has been a roller coaster. Transitioning out of freshmen year, volunteering on my Alternative Break, then coming home to live…

{MASC/MAHS Camp}

Michigan Association of Student Councils and Honor Societies has impacted my life completely since 2014. Starting off as just a sophomore in high school, I have been fortunate enough to be involved in this powerful organization through Leadership Training Institutes, Regional conferences, and even state-wide conferences. Beginning summer 2014, I had registered to become a…

{MDA Summer Camp}

Have you ever been to a place that brings you so much joy, you find it hard to believe it’s real? You know, the feeling you get when you open the gift you wanted the most under the Christmas tree? Or the feeling you get when someone tells you they’re proud of you? This is…
