What is your most memorable contribution as a Campus Queen?: As campus queen I've worked to engage the student body more. To change the perception of the position as a figurehead to an active servant leader. As queen my platform and reign are centered around empowering women to live up to their full potential and grasp all God has in store for them. The most memorable moment would be my program the W.H.O.L.E Experience. W.H.O.L.E summarizes three of my greatest loves; God, servant hood and elegance. The acronym W.H.O.L.E is representative of a woman who is worthy of praise, heaven-bound, opportunistic, a servant-leader, and elegant. The feedback from the program and initiative has been tremendous. The ladies on my campus left feeling as though they could conquer the world.
