As a past OL, what piece of advice would you give to incoming freshman for orientation:
Get involved, try things that make you uncomfortable, and don’t waste your time doing things that don’t make you happy.
To say you’ve been “involved” during your time at UTSA is an understatement. How do you prioritize everything you do:
I struggled with doing this a lot last year since I had so many commitments. This school year I promised myself to only prioritize the activities and organizations that I genuinely enjoyed. I’ve come to realize the importance of not biting off more than I could chew. Focus on quality over quantity.

I am so much more confident in who I am and what I am capable of

Sophomore year, I went camping with a huge group of friends. We went swimming in the lake, watched the sunset, and partied all day/night. It was the most perfect weekend ever.
