- Why I chose my major
I chose Consumer Journalism because of its interdisciplinary nature. I loved the idea of being able to hand-select my classes in a way that would reflect my specific interests. Thus, the opportunity to take classes in both Grady and FACS enabled me to broaden my array of knowledge, and ultimately allowed me to find a passion for governmental affairs and policy through this journey.
- What I like most about FACS
FACS is a family. I am positive that all of the mean people in FACS must be hiding behind closed doors, because in all of my four years, I have not come across one ill-hearted person here. The FACS faculty cries when you cry, smiles when you smile, and cheers you on to finish the race. I cannot thank Dr. Simmons, Dr. Cude, Dr. Warmath, among many others, enough for everything they do to see their students through to their full potential. If I, one day, obtain half of the professionalism they currently possess, I will count it as a success.
- Post-graduation plans
This summer, I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve as a legislative intern at the U.S. Capitol under Congressman Austin Scott of the 8th Congressional District of Georgia. Next year, I will be back at UGA, earning my master’s in public administration. So excited to be a Double Dawg!
