What have you learned about leadership through your work with others on campus?

I’ve learned to voice my opinion. In high school I was so shy, which really held me back from leadership opportunities. Taking on leadership roles at UGA has helped me be able to speak up and also make decisions.

What advice would you give to a student thinking about changing their major to FACS?

Do it! Having been in many different majors and colleges so far, FACS is definitely something special. FACS has great majors that are really applicable to the community and the workplace. But the best thing to me is the smaller size of the college. It really allows you to get to know your professors and fellow students, which makes your college experience so much better.

Best advice for a 1st year student? Transfer Student?

Don’t be afraid to do something out of your comfort zone! These four years are the best time to take chances and try something new. Whether it’s public speaking or trying a new sport you will never know if you don’t try, but you usually will surprise yourself!

What are your Future plans?

I want to be an entrepreneur. I’m not sure what kind of businesses I want to start but ultimately I would love to start a catering company or a café.
