MK Bozeman is a junior studio art major from Shreveport, La. When she’s not giving tours to prospective students as a Presidential Ambassador, you can find her on the softball field playing for the Majors.
The Purple and White: What made you come to Millsaps?
MK Bozeman: I like to tell people that I came for softball but stayed because I fell in love with the community. I still remember the first tour that I came on here and immediately fell in love with the campus and the people here and just knew that this is where I wanted to be.
P&W: So far, what has been your best memory on campus?
MK: Honestly, probably my 19th birthday. I had a project for my art class where I was supposed to go to a place, spend 20 minutes there and never go back. I went to the football tower overlooking the turf, and I went around 11:30 P.M. so by the time I left, it was already my birthday and that was pretty cool.
P&W: Who on campus has made the biggest impact on you thus far?
MK: Probably Alex Wicker. She’s my person. She’s always there if I need to talk or even if I don’t want to. I know she’ll be around to kind of get me through whatever is going on.
P&W: How do you de-stress before finals?
MK: I definitely listen to a lot of music. I have a Spotify playlist that is 30 hours long. I just roll through that for a while.
P&W: What’s the last thing you did for fun?
MK: Yesterday, instead of doing homework, I scrolled through Facebook for 4 hours.
P&W: Tell me an embarrassing story about yourself.
MK: The second tour I gave at Millsaps, I was walking down the Murrah stairs and tripped on that little half step and fell down the stairs in front of a big group of people. It was great.
P&W: If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
MK: Kraft mac and cheese. Old reliable.
P&W: Tell me one thing you hope people remember you for.
MK: Dedication. I want to be the person who doesn’t give up on something even when it’s hard.
