“I am my ancestors’ wildest dreams.”

Just one month before moving to Raleigh as a first-year @ncstatedesign student, Ashtyn Thomas was crowned Miss Lumbee 2023. Now, she’s balancing her full architecture course load and serving as an ambassador for the Lumbee community — all while building a new home here at NC State.

“When I put pieces of NC State on my dress, it shows NC State is a place where I’ve found home and will be home for the next few years.”
