Meet the Honors Ambassadors
The Honors College Ambassadors (A - Team) are dedicated students that represent the Honors College through service at recruitment and community events. Honors Ambassadors demonstrate academic achievement and involvement within the Honors College, and at Florida Gulf Coast University. Meet the 2022 - 2023 Honors Ambassadors.

Major: Accounting '24
My favorite experience in the Honors College is the Honors Embedded course from my minor, "Venture Funding". I conducted research on what made a crowdfunding campaign successful and was later able to present my research using Honors Development Funds at a national conference.
Major: Psychology '24
Concentration: Neuroscience and Cognition
Hey guys! My name is Dominique Berrette, or Dom for short, and I am an Honors Ambassador! I am originally from Fort Myers, Florida, and I am a current senior at FGCU. I am majoring in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience and a minor in Biology, and with the dream of becoming a doctor. I am the Vice President of Global Medical Brigades, as well as the Vice President for Project Narrative. In my free time I love playing tennis and crocheting.
Major: Entrepreneurship '24
The Honors College and their resources have played a huge role in my experience here at FGCU. The Honors Development Fund allowed me to study abroad and complete an internship in Sorrento, Italy. I was also able to complete an independent study with a professor on Criminal Competency through an Honors Experience.
I love that the Honors College is invested in helping students meet their personal and professional goals with intention. The Honors Elements are like a holistic guide that helps students find direction as they navigate college.
The Honors experiences have been great in helping me find opportunities that will actually help me achieve my goals of becoming a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and professor. The Honors College gives me the push I need to be confident and ambitious. As a result, I am now a paid research assistant, school psychology intern, and honors ambassador!
Major: Biology '26
Hey nerdy birds! My name is Kayla, and I am a Biology major hoping to go to medical school once I graduate. My favorite part of the Honors College is all the organizations I have been introduced, such as Global Medical Brigades, which I now have a leadership position in.
My favorite part about the Honors College is the endless opportunities you have to be able to further your education. Like an Honor's thesis or taking Honor's standalone courses and so much more. I love being a part of the Honor's community as well. Being surrounded by people with similar goals and aspirations is inspiring.
This is my second year serving as an Ambassador. I am also a social media intern for the Honors College. I completed a creative thesis in the Spring 2023 semester. It was a short story loosely based on my freshman year of college.
Major: Bioengineering '25
I love being part of the Honors College, because it's a close and small community - which helped me a lot when moving out of state. I love animals and writing poetry in my free time, whenver I'm not studying in the library! I hope to eventually go to master's school and pursue pharmaceutical engineering.
Major: Healthcare Administration '26
Minor: Medical Humanities
My favorite part of the Honors College is the family environment and community I have become a part of. The Honors College host events regularly for students to get to know each other, alerts are sent out in the Monday Messages, along with other honors resources. There is so much support from the staff and other students that you don’t have to worry about asking for help, and you can always find someone to study with!
I am a Junior and I enjoy getting involved in research opportunities on campus. One thing I enjoy of being part of the Honors College is being able to try new things. There are plenty of different opportunities for students. Whether it is through classes or outside of campus, there is something new to discover, and being able to expand my experience in different fields is one of them.
