Opportunity(s) you wish you would have taken advantage when were available and opportunity(s) you are glad you jumped on:
The one thing I wish I would have done in college that I didn't was study abroad. I'm extremely glad I rushed a sorority in college though because my life would be completely different without the experiences and lifelong friendships that came with my involvement in the organization. I'm also very proud of myself for never giving up on my dream to be a NBA dancer and the dedication I'm giving toward my role in the Bucks organization.
