Where do you Relay and Why?
I have been relaying for seven years now! I started relaying in middle school and was a team member throughout high school. Once I came to UGA, I knew I wanted to continue relaying. My Freshman year, I was a committee member and now I serve on the Executive Board as the Campus Engagement Chair. Most importantly, I serve as the Fundraising and Innovations chair on the National Campus Leadership Team. I relay for my mom, Delia, who fought a long battle of Leukemia for 8 years. After 2 transplants, she was pronounced cancer free as of January 2017!
What is your favorite Relay memory?
My favorite Relay memory is looking at my mom's Luminaria bag during the traditional Luminaria ceremony.
Explain your role as the Fundraising & Innovation Chair on the NCLT.
My role as the Fundraising and Innovations Chair on the National Campus Leadership Team is brand new! It was created to innovate new ways and improvements on current fundraising. Fundraising is so important to doctors, researchers, cancer patients, and caregivers, so I deem it very important to always push fundraising to another level!
What is a goal you have for yourself on the NCLT
While serving on the NCLT I aim to provide very useful fundraising resources and aid for all campus relayers!
