    I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. It’s completely surreal that after all of these years, and a lot of setbacks, that everything I’ve worked for is finally happening. I owe it all to my family, friends and Creighton who helped me grow, supported me through the hard times and celebrated me in my triumphs.
