When I came to a conference at OU, I was shown the promise of not just a family, but a home here in Norman. Coming from a place where my parents have a total of 13 siblings, I know what it means to come from a big family, and that is exactly what this college is. I know that when I reflect on my OU experience years from now, I will always have immense gratitude for the privilege of having such impactful opportunities these last four years.
