Tour Guide at Arizona State University - Tempe Campus

Class of 2020

Hometown: Dickson, TN

Major: Business Management

Concentration: International Business

Secondary Major: Supply Chain Management


Why did you choose to attend Arizona State University?

I came to ASU for a number of reasons. No schools in my home state of Tennessee stood out to me, so I toured ASU purely because my stepdad wanted me to (he was born and raised in Tempe). I had to tour the school twice before I was sold. Not only was becoming a Barrett honors student part of why I chose ASU but also because W.P Carey School of Business is highly acclaimed on a global level. Scholarships were readily available, which was also a bonus.

What is your dream job?

I have two that come to mind. I would love to work in logistics or operations management with a multinational retail company such as Target, Zara or H&M. I would also love to be an international buyer for a clothing franchise like the places I mentioned above.

What do you know now that you wish you had known your first year at ASU?

Getting involved is KEY to making friends. I was too shy/stubborn to get involved in clubs my Freshman year, and as a result, I did not make that many friends. As soon as I started joining organizations and leaving my dorm room more often, I started meeting more people with common interests.

What is your favorite event, activity or club at ASU?

Favorite event: Passport to ASU because this allows students easy access to all of the clubs and organizations on campus and makes it easier to get involved. Favorite club: Devils' Advocates... Obviously this is a little bit biased, but joining this organization led me to discover a passion I did not even know I had (giving tours to prospective students) and also introduced me to so many amazing people that I classify as best friends and even family.
