- Why I chose my major
When I was initially enrolled in the University of Georgia, I was a biology major in the pursuit of going to medical school. During my sophomore year, I began working for the FACS Student Success and Advising Center, and I instantly felt at home. I was convinced that medical schools wanted people who showed passion for something, and my passion quickly became nutrition. I switched my major to Nutritional Sciences, fell in love with my classes and professors and have not had a reason to look back since.
- What I like most about FACS
I love the people at FACS! My experience in this college was amazing, and it all started with a job in the SSAC! I was able to meet some of the most genuine and supportive people. This college inspired and encouraged me throughout my college career, and I gathered so many lifelong experiences and memories. The faculty and staff were always so eager to help me with anything I needed, and they have all taught me so much.
- Post-graduation plans
During my gap year from medical school, I hope to increase my experience in clinical work.
