Why do you choose to be involved as a FACS Ambassador?

I really want to be able to be a part of something bigger than myself and give back to the college that has done so much for me during my time here.

What is your favorite UGA or FACS tradition?

Good ole’ Georgia Football! Tailgating on Myers Quad, being surrounded by thousands of your peers in Sanford stadium, and cheering on the team we all love- nothing gets better than that!

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

Get involved! Joining campus organizations and participating in extracurricular activities is the best way to meet people with similar interests as you. I have met some of my best friends through the organizations I am a part of and I would never have made UGA feel so much like a home if I hadn’t found these groups! It might be scary at first going to a meeting where you don’t know anyone, and trust me, we have all been there. But you won’t regret it! It’ll be the best thing you can do as a new student to UGA’s campus.

What are your Future plans?

I would love to create my own HGTV show that showcases interior design around the world- interior design that I have worked on with a team of designers. I love to travel and being able to do that and pursue my passion of interior design would be absolutely a dream!
