What made you apply to be an SHP Student Ambassador?

At my first visit to Mizzou, Cheri mentioned that I should look into being an SHP Student Ambassador once I was on campus. Since I had similar roles in high school, I thought it would be a fruitful and enjoyable experience. Additionally, I wanted to share the love I have for Mizzou and health care with others.
