Because of you I have the freedom to pursue what I love. I chose to attend Ball State because of the wide variety of opportunities it had to offer and the amazing environment of the Honors College. Through my time at Ball State, I have met influential professors and people that have pushed me to grow. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their support.

The generous scholarships provided by support from alumni and friends of Ball State have given my family and I the security needed to focus on my passion of creative writing.

After graduation I hope to give back to Ball State by sharing my experiences with my peers and future students. Ball State has offered me so many opportunities to further my skills, and I hope in the future I can use those skills to positively impact the lives of others. Thank you.
