Meet the Incoming 2022 Ambassadors

  • Folasade Asoro
    Folasade Asoro, Junior
    Public Health Administration
    "I desire not to be a representative merely for the look of it, but to see how I can really use what I learn behind the scenes of this growing university, the opportunities I have been given, and the connections I make to hopefully establish similar opportunities for people while I am schooling and after I graduate. This reflects the essence of what I desire to do as an advocate and caretaker in the real world. As a Lamar University Ambassador I want to be able to encourage the creativity here, and in the most authentic way, illustrate the best of what we as a school and student body have to offer."
  • Julia Barrett
    Julia Barrett, Junior

    "The Lamar University Ambassadors are prominent leaders at our university, and I have seen the ways these students influence and change their peers, the university, and our communities. I am grateful for all the opportunities this university has given me, and I want to play a vital part in promoting school unity, pride, and involvement."
  • Kalan Bonnette
    Kalan Bonnette, Senior
    Mathematics and Computer Science
    "As my number of free t-shirts might suggest, I [have] worked and volunteered at many [Lamar University] events, meeting even more people and finding non-work events to take part in such as intramural e-sports, Model UN, and the Undergraduate Academic Research Expo. I've spent many late nights on this campus because the events were so compelling."
  • Jada Bowie-Coleman
    Jada Bowie-Coleman, Junior
    American Sign Language
    "It is my desire to promote a drive for attaining higher education, and support for diverse individuals. Being a student Ambassador [gives] me the chance to give back to the school and to others around campus. I am passionate about spreading...awareness of what Lamar University exemplifies."
  • Waverlee Cooper
    Waverlee Cooper, Sophomore
    Biology
    "Lamar is a prestigious university that offers diversity, opportunity, and knowledge. I have met so many amazing professors and students who are more than willing to help me through my college journey. LU is always looking for ways to improve the college life and experience for both on- and off-campus students."
  • Tomisin Egbewale
    Tomisin Egbewale, Sophomore
    Computer Science
    "The service and leadership skills that I have gained through my work experience, on- and off-campus involvement, and completion of the LU Lead program have all come to define my leadership journey and experience. I have grown to know the type of leader that I am; my communication skills have been sharpened, and my interpersonal relationship skills have also been heightened."
  • Amarie Guillory
    Amarie Guillory, Junior
    Marketing
    "While on campus, I had the chance to witness current Lamar University Ambassadors serve students, alumni, etc. through service, leadership, and scholarship, while displaying school pride and excitement. Having the opportunity to be surrounded by such driven students has influenced my desire to mirror such greatness."
  • Vavah Kamasa-Quashie
    Vavah Kamasa-Quashie, Sophomore
    Psychology
    "As a freshman trying to give myself some exposure and more leadership experience as well as involvement on campus, I [was] confident that this program would be a great fit for me. A program that builds fellowship with its community and alumni and represents Lamar University at community events and university functions is a place I [could see] myself planting seeds."
  • Zuhair Merchant
    Zuhair Merchant, Junior
    Computer and Information Science
    "I joined Lamar University in the Fall of 2019 and since then, the journey has been nothing short of brilliant. There have been many reasons for that, like the loving people at Lamar, helpful professors, and the spirit that Lamar carries within itself. Another reason for this wonderful journey is my on-campus involvement and familiarity with the university within 2 years of studying here." "Lamar University Ambassadors Program is a brilliant opportunity for anyone to get involved with other students on campus who are from various parts of the country and the world. This program recognizes brilliant minds, and just being a part of it [is] a fantastic opportunity for a student like me who always wants to get involved on campus, and by getting involved, also representing my country, India, on campus."
  • Conner Montgomery
    Conner Montgomery, Senior
    Chemical Engineering
    "My experience at Lamar has been a very personal and immersive journey thanks to those within the community. I have loved and gained a tremendous amount from my on-campus involvement with the university, and I plan on continuing to participate until my graduation in 2024."
  • Jacob Murphy
    Jacob Murphy, Senior
    Management
    "Many of my past professors have shown qualities that I hope to emulate. The ability to engage students has always been one of my favorite qualities of a professor. I hope to develop this quality to engage students at Lamar University, as well as the community of Southeast Texas, to live their best lives. Another quality that I have a great amount of respect for is the ability of some of my professors to be a visionary. My moot court coach sees my team's future successes and knows exactly how to prepare us to reach our goals. I hope that someday I will be able to inspire people to strive for their future potentials."
  • Lucia Ortiz
    Lucia Ortiz, Senior

    "It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Lamar University community these past couple of years and even more rewarding to experience the countless opportunities Lamar offers within their organizations. Throughout my academic career, I have participated in numerous events and involved myself with the many like-minded individuals whom I have learned from, welcoming a journey full of knowledge and remarkable experiences. I have been delighted by the inclusion of different backgrounds, cultures, and mindsets Lamar promotes...I would like to serve as a resource to the university by providing an exemplary image and sound guidance to the community, mirroring the support I have received during my time at Lamar."
  • Chloe Raczkovi
    Chloe Raczkovi, Junior

    "The Ambassador program is a great way to connect and network to gain more knowledge in absolutely everything. By joining the Ambassadors, I [knew] my personality and ambition will push me to do the most by making Lamar an even better place for the current students and future ones too. I have absolutely no problem speaking in front of people, especially if my job [is] to brag about this school. All 3 of my siblings have attended Lamar University, and I continued that legacy because of the programs Lamar offers and the fact that your professors are always behind your back pushing you to do your best."
  • Jacob Smith
    Jacob Smith, Junior
    Nursing
    "My goal before I graduate is to get as involved on campus as I possibly can so that I can work together with my peers for the elevation of Lamar University while also making the best of my college experience...This position [provides] me with a place of recognition where I can truly work with my other fellow Ambassadors to achieve whatever it is that we need to achieve in order for the campus to succeed. I believe that I can help make a difference, especially when it comes to school spirit."
  • Jonah Smith

  • Jacob Thompson
    Jacob Thompson, Junior

  • Madeline Tzul
    Madeline Tzul, Junior

    "My first encounter with Lamar University was my freshman year at West Brook High School when the admission counselors visited my school. During the quick interaction, I knew Lamar University was an excellent fit for me, as it was close to home, gave back to the community I was raised in, and represented a strong Cardinal community."
