Think being a student is hard? Try being a full time single mom too! I juggle potty training, working, and a full course load.

What’s in My Bag?

  1. Which one item do you think you couldn’t live without?
    I couldn’t live without my belt buckle. It reminds me of the amazing places I've been, and the amazing places I'm going, too!

  2. Is there anything missing from this picture that is usually in your bag?
    Leftover goldfish cracker crumbs and baby wipes; if you're a mom you'll get this.

  3. What is the most cherished item in your bag?
    My son’s hospital bracelets from the day he was born. I can’t believe he used to be that tiny!

  4. If your bag had a name, what would it be?
    Mud, because I don’t think it’s been cleaned out since the day I bought it.

  5. Which of the items in your bag would you recommend other students always have on hand, and why?
    A keepsake or reminder of your family. It’s easy to lose your roots while you’re out there finding yourself, but if you always keep a reminder of where you came from it's a lot harder to get lost along the way.

  6. What item from your bag would your friends say represents you the most?
    My cowboy boots! I have my “professional” pair (as pictured) and my worn out working pair. Who said city and country can’t mix!

  7. Be honest, did you add any items to your bag to make your profile seem more interesting/cool?
    Nope, but the rope can be a little misleading ... it isn’t mine, it’s my sons. I can’t rope to save my life, but I secretly practice when nobody's looking.

  8. If you could trade bags for a day with another Ambassador, who would you choose, and why?
    Sephra’s, I have no idea why, but it had this cool tribal vibe and I'm dying to know the stories behind it.
