Why I chose my major

I chose my major because I saw it as a way for me to help others. Although most of the educational work done through the financial planning major is aimed towards wealthier individuals and businesses, I plan to take the knowledge I have gained and spread it to those in underrepresented communities. My job will be to spread the abundance of resources to those who may not otherwise receive the same opportunities as me.

What I like most about FACS

What I like most about FACS is the sense of community. Most of my classes were small, which is what I was used to in high school. So, once I got through my huge general education classes during my first two years, it was a relief to be able to get to know professors one-on-one and have that direct attention and help. Everyone here has encouraged me and made me feel welcomed every time I have come through Dawson Hall. It’s truly the BEST college at the University of Georgia.

Post-graduation plans

Upon graduation, I will be moving to Atlanta to pursue a full-time position in financial planning and beginning my travel plans.
