What accomplishment are you most proud of? The accomplishment that I am most proud of is my organization that I founded called The Girl Flo.
What book or documentary do you recommend? "No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline" by Brian Tracy.
What is your favorite quote? "To whom much is given, much is required."
What is a story or memory you have that sticks out from an L3 Event, Program or Workshop? The most memorable L3 Event was when we were walking on the strip at the University of Florida conference. It was a really fun night and we got to meet a lot of people.
What have you learned through L3 that has made a difference for you? I have learned to be unique unapologetically. L3 has taught me to be vocal and to always be prepared and ready to go because that's how true ladies lead. L3 showed me how to be put in different scenes and still accomplish whatever needed to get done.
What makes L3 special? L3 is special because it focuses on more than just the professionalism and knowledge. L3 really creates life lasting bonds and I'm thankful for having them. L3 stands out from different programs because of the memories that we create.
What advice do you have for incoming students? The advice that I have for incoming students is to take advantage of every opportunity. If I didn't take advantage of an opportunity I wouldn't have even been apart of L3 programs.
