My Favorite Part About Being a Mule
I love the small community feel that also genuinely cares about students and supports them through their time at UCM! 

Advice for Students
Be curious and try as many things as you can during your time at UCM. Let your nerves drive you because it probably means that you are meant to do it! 

Hobbies and Interests
Spending time with my family and friends! My family are huge Chiefs and Royals fans and I love going to sporting events and concerts! 

2 wing 3
Twos usually care less about the spotlight and are more concerned about the friends they make along the way. Still, with the three’s influence, they are more success-driven, competitive, and judgmental of others with a poor attitude towards criticism.  When influenced by the three wing, an Enneagram type two can have aspects that both contradict and reinforce one another.
