Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Why I Chose TCU:

Transferring from a large college I wanted a place with a tight community. The Frog Family has been so welcoming to me. I have met so many new people from different cultures that I would not have met otherwise. The professors truly care about my success. The small class sizes allow me to have a personal relationship with my professors.

Plans After Graduation:

My goal is to attend law school to become a tribal lawyer. As a member of the Cherokee Nation, I want to give back to my Native community. Recent court rulings have increased the need for lawyers familiar with tribal issues. I also want to be a role model for young Native Americans so they can see that they can achieve their dreams.
