Why I chose my major

When I entered college I had no idea what I wanted to study but I knew I wanted to help people. I chose Human Development and Family Science because it a field that provides so many options to help others.

What I like most about FACS

The thing I love most about FACS is the family feeling. I came from a small town to a huge campus at UGA. Some students struggle to find their place when they go off to college, and FACS helped me find my place and gave me a family as well.

Post-graduation plans

I will be enrolling at Mercer University to pursue my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.
