Best experience of being a New Orleans Saintsation so far: The best experience of being a Saintsation so far is meeting a wide variety of women and becoming closer to them all during our team retreat. Each member has a story and incredible characteristics to bring to the table, making the Saintsations unstoppable! Seeing this diversity has also broadened my horizons on life.
Best thing about being a Saintsation: The best part of being a New Orleans Saintsation is the positive energy surrounding every team member- it’s contagious! The drive to be the best is unreal and something I will always remember from my experience as a Saintsation.
Advice for younger girls: “Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30. I would say to remember this verse and believe in yourself. Set a goal and do whatever it takes to achieve it! Drive and tenacity are great keys to success!
Trait you admire most in other people: Ambition
What is your most outstanding attribute: Dedication. I strive to put forth 110% effort every day.
Other than your family, who is a positive role model in your life: Jesus. Although I have never met the man, we have all heard countless stories about Him. God tells us in the Bible to strive to be more like Him. I pray I could be just a fraction of the man He was and still is today!
If you had the opportunity to travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why: I would love to study abroad in Greece for a summer. Not only would it be a great experience to live in another country for a few months while pursuing my dream to become a lawyer, but I would also enjoy site-seeing and soaking up the sun on the stunning beaches along the coast of Greece.
