Meet Tina!


Major: Chemistry
Hometown: Overland Park, KS
What are your career goals?
To become a personal trainer (and part time mermaid)!

Why did you choose UMKC? UMKC is right in the middle of all the fun! There is Crossroads, Westport, and the Plaza all within a 10-minute car ride away. It has the right size campus full of loving diversity and I felt so welcomed here since day 1.
What are you involved with on campus? Member of Alpha Phi Omega (APO), and a Campus Ambassador!

What’s your favorite thing about UMKC? UMKC has an amazing library that is like my second home, I know all the great napping places. So make sure you check out the 3rd floor Student Union, they have HUGE bean bags! And, we have a pretty cool pool.

What’s your favorite thing about KC? The bipolar weather, you never know what you’re going to get! The mix of city life.

May you share a fun fact with us? I love swimming and working out! I used to do synchronized swimming (no, we did not wear flower caps). I cannot do a handstand.
What is your ultimate comfort meal or food? Mac n cheese and French toast (eaten separately)!

So you’ve been doing this college thing for a while now. Any advice for students?
Don’t be afraid to be yourself, college is the time to find out who you really are and putting yourself outside of your comfort zone! You never know unless you try it!
