Why did you join TBE Exec?

I joined exec because I loved the mission and purpose of The Big Event. I wanted to work with cool people to accomplish a common goal that would benefit others. I love being a part of something bigger than myself.

Why are you passionate about TBE?

I love The Big Event because of how it unites the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and gives back to the local Lincoln community. The smiles and gratitude from community members after we volunteer reassures me that one person can make a BIG difference in this world. The Big Event is our way to say "Thank you" to the community that continues to support our dreams and endeavors.
