Annabel Klemm

Hometown: College Station, TX
Major: Agricultural Economics

Zone: Leadership Development

Howdy! My name is Annabel Klemm and I am a sophomore agricultural economics major from College Station, Texas. When I'm not learning about beef trade in my classes, I'm usually spending time outside and hanging out with my friends. I really enjoy the coconut La Croix flavor despite popular opinion, and think soy sauce on anything is absolute gas. I also really like to fish but am pretty bad and use hotdogs as bait so if you want to go fishing don't hmu. I love all kinds of music (especially country) so send me your favorite songs:) I also unfortunately listen to K-pop but it is also gas. I love this organization and the people it has brought me, and I can't wait to meet you class of '25! Stay woke kids.

Hi hello! I’m Berlyn Zertuche and I’m a Biomedical Science Major from San Antonio, Texas. A little bit about myself, I had my first ever PB&J sandwich this year and I’m currently working to fix my posture so if you see me slouch please remind me. My favorite way to spend time is to sit outside and whistle with birds. I’m passionate about a lot of things and the incoming freshmen class is one of them! So excited for the class of ‘25 and all the good times coming this year.

Caroline Valdes

Hometown: Tomball, TX
Major: Biology

Zone: Public Relations

Hello beautiful people! My name is Caroline Valdes and I am a biology major from Tomball, Texas!  I am a proud cat lover and connoisseur of both queso and energy drinks, but my real passion is feeling like the main character at any given moment. When I am not crying and listening to frank ocean while studying in the wee hours of the night, you can probably find me either at Torchys, at the DG house, or taking an accidental nap somewhere.  Full disclosure, I managed to peak in middle school when I participated in a flash mob to Call Me Maybe by carly rae jepson, so you are unfortunately meeting me on the decline of my coolness.  If you see me on the roads of cstat giving mariah carey a run for her money with my singing abilities, no you didn't!  On a real note, FLEX is the best thing that has happened to me since coming to college, and I am so excited to serve the org that has blessed me in so many ways.  Get ready to meet your best friends and make lifelong memories!!!

Jackson Todd

Zone: Leadership Development

Hello! My name is Jackson Todd and I am a finance major from Frisco, Texas. Big stock guy I know. Outside of losing all my money trading penny stocks, you can catch me cooking up some incredible meals, listening to all kinds of music, recently EDM, or just chilling out while playing some Warzone (I am trying to get that 2.0 K.D.). Speaking of video games, I am better than Sam Jones at Rocket League (he claims to be a "grand champ"). FLEX allowed me to meet my best friends this past freshman year and I am so excited for FLEX ’25 to do the same. Get hyped for an incredible, life-changing year!

Heyo!! My name is Mariana Martinez and I am a sophomore marketing major from Plano, Texas. I love going on drives and listening to music along with watching all kinds of movies such as Harry Potter, Good Will Hunting, any Pixar film, and Inception. Some of my favorite artists are lumineers, young the giant, hippocampus, and rex orange county (however I do jam out to 1D on the daily hehe). I love riding my ripstick and would like to think it makes me cool and no one can tell me otherwise. I’m also a big fan of spontaneous adventures with friends, talking about the most random topics, and most importantly travelling. FLEX has shown me what it’s like to be friends with all types of people that help bring out the best in each other. I’m so excited for y’all to get to experience this incredible organization. Class of ‘25 y’all are the coolest.

Melina Martin

Hometown: Southlake, TX
Major: Business

Zone: Social

Hi, I’m Melina Martin and I am a sophomore business major from Southlake, Texas! My dream day would be spending the entire day at Six Flags and then going to Pappadeaux for dinner and having a BIG SLAB of salmon. During the school year, when I’m not in class or studying, I love to spend time with my friends, drive around the College Station/Bryan area, show up late to any of my responsibilities, and read all my texts but not respond to any of them! I love funny people and am ALWAYS laughing, so if I don't laugh at your joke, you’re not funny! You might have already recognized me from my time on season 14 of America’s Got Talent but please know I have more to offer than just being famous! FLEX has genuinely become one of my biggest blessings and I am so grateful to be a part of this organization. I am so pumped for this year and cannot wait to meet every single one of you.

Zone: Social

What’s upppp! My name is Nick and I’m a computer science student from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Whenever I’m not studying, I like to go to the rec, watch movies, listen to music, just hang out with friends, and watch sports. I’m a huge sports fan, but especially all things basketball and football. Also, I will listen to anything so send me your favorite songs! Since I’m from out of state, I didn’t know anybody on campus at first, but FLEX really became my family this year and I’m super stoked to meet all of you!

Sam Jones

What's up?! My name is Sam and I am a construction science major from Pearland, TX. I enjoy playing soccer and video games. I also have weird colored hair and I know how to play the bagpipes. I listen to all kinds of music and I am very neutral about country music. I listen to Frank Ocean the most right now and I have been getting more into Tyler, The Creator recently. I play warzone and I am better than Jackson Todd who claims to have a “high K.D”. I am a Champ 3 in rocket league at the moment, and I hope to be Grand Champ by the time I meet all of you! FLEX definitely made my freshman year and I hope it can be the same for y'all! I would type more but Meagan made me stop and submit it. I’m super excited to meet y’all!

Sarah Lane

Hometown: Prosper, TX
Major: Allied Health

Zone: Public Relations

Heyyy! :) My name is Sarah Lane, and I am a sophomore allied health major from Prosper, Texas. My favorite things are night car rides, working out, and buying shoes I don’t need! I enjoy traveling and spontaneous adventures with my friends and can most likely be found with an iced coffee in one hand and a honey butter chicken biscuit in the other. I’m always laughing at anything and everything and have never successfully finished telling a joke. FLEX has had such an amazing impact on my life, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without these amazing humans. I’m so excited for y’all to find your forever home with FLEX like I did and make the most out of your freshman year!!

Siddharth Venkatraman

Hometown: Austin, TX
Major: Computer Science

Zone: Social

Hey everyone! My name is Sid Venkatraman and I’m a Computer Science student from Austin, Texas. I am a huge fan of Warriors basketball so that makes me cool. I enjoy playing Xbox, any outdoor games, and pondering the city of Gilmer. Stephen Kelley is my spirit animal. I am better than Sam Jones at rocket league (he claims to be a “grand champ”). In all seriousness, FLEX was such an awesome way to get involved and meet people, and a lot of the people I met ended up being my closest family this past year. I love FLEX because everyone is so different from one another, and everyone is so accepted and welcomed. I can’t wait to meet all of you, and I know we’re all gonna have a blast this year.

Stephen Kelley

Hometown: Houston, TX
Major: Finance

Zone: Service

Howdy! My name is Stephen Kelley and I’m from Houston, Texas! On most nights (and sometimes mornings), I can be found at the rec center, playing some intramural or just moving heavy objects. Things that I love are fried rice, milkshakes, FLEX, and the wonderful city of Gilmer. One sad fact about me is that I am lactose intolerant. Some fun facts about me are that I am better than Sam Jones at rocket league (he claims to be a “grand champ”), I can type 130 words per minute, I am the leader of a secret organization on campus (we will approach you, not vice versa), I can build a mean paper airplane, I can shuffle cards (with the bridge), and I’ve never broken a bone. FLEX is what gave me a home away from home, and a community of people I could be myself around.
