When asked what her advice to current students would be, she said: "In order to take advantage of the endless opportunities ASU offers you have to get involved. I wish that I would have gotten to know my teachers sooner and been more forward when it came to participating in different activities. I would advise anyone to get to know your teachers right away. Do not be afraid to visit during office hours and ask questions. I would also encourage anyone to join different clubs, volunteer groups, etc. Getting involved early is one of the best things you can do during your time at ASU."
