MK Bozeman is grateful for the opportunity to claim her voice both inside and outside of the classroom at Millsaps College.
“I love the way students at Millsaps are free to express themselves and find support for their ideas,” said Bozeman, a rising junior. “In my classes, I know my peers and professors are listening to what I have to say and my opinions are appreciated because they are unique to my experiences and me.”
Some of her favorite moments involve being a presidential ambassador and getting to meet prospective students and parents, Bozeman said.
“While giving tours, I get to make connections with so many people,” she said. “I love seeing students that I showed around campus come back and go to school here.
“I also really enjoy getting to share my story and all of the things I have learned at Millsaps with other people in hopes that they will have the opportunity to have awe-inspiring experiences as well.”
What makes Millsaps stand out to Bozeman is its community of faculty, students, and staff.
“I like to tell people that I found Millsaps because of softball but I stayed for the people. I fell in love with the Millsaps community and I cannot imagine living and working anywhere else,” she said.
A Bossier City, La. native, Bozeman plans to earn a studio art major with a concentration in digital arts and minors in business administration and psychology. She hopes to eventually operate her own architecture firm and open a non-profit organization to design and build homes in low-income areas to provide families in need beautiful living spaces to call their own.
Bozeman plays central field for the Millsaps softball team, where she holds a .400 batting average. She is a resident assistant and will serve as a Panhellenic Gamma Chi recruitment counselor for 2017.
