What does graduating from Nebraska mean to you?

As a native of this beautiful state, being a Husker was something I had always dreamed of, and I'm glad I was able to make that a reality these past 4 years. To me, graduating from Nebraska means that I completed a major goal of mine through a historically great institution in a city I love. Plus, my home state gets to see one of my greatest achievements, something for which I couldn't be more thankful. 


What are your plans after graduation and what are you most looking forward to?

After graduation, I will be moving up to Fargo, North Dakota to join the staff at North Dakota State University Athletics as their Director of Graphic Design. After graduation, I am most looking forward to taking that next big step into the real world, showing that I'm ready to attack that next opportunity and put my talents and knowledge to great use.


What is the best thing about being a Husker?

The best thing about being a Husker is your connection to the community, both on campus and beyond. I've met so many great people here and made connections that will last me a lifetime, something for which I will forever be grateful.  


Who would you like to thank?

I just want to give a big thank you to my Mom and Dad, who have helped me tremendously throughout this chapter of my life. I can't thank them enough for the continued support, and I'm excited to continue making them proud. I did it guys!
