Sadly my school did not have Greek life
Favorite thing about being southern
To be honest being a sweet tea lover and being genuinely hospitable
What is your personal life motto
“Throw kindness like confetti “
What is the most challenging professional obstacle you have had?
Being able to get a full-time job after graduating college. I wanted to go to medical school so jumping into a full-time job wasn’t a priority until I wasn’t accepted and I had to go another route. I finally landed a full-time position at Emory University doing clinical research! It took endless apps and working two part times in the interim. As far as blogging it is honestly creating a unique presence. Everyone wants to be a blogger now and there are so many others who had started their blogs 5 years prior so I was a late start. I hope that one day I’m a huge blogger and it becomes a source of income but it’s more of a creative outlet for me at the moment.
Who is your favorite character a “Different World”?
If you could do any job, what would that be?
Who do you wish you could meet?
What would your best friend say is the best/most annoying quality about yourself?
Best quality is that I care and see the best in people even if they have done wrong by me. Most annoying is that I freak out about a lot of things and I am easily stressed so I don’t take many risks.
What advice would you give your younger college self?
To not take on so many tasks outside of school work. I double booked myself all the time with club meetings and planning campus events and coaching a middle school volleyball team that there were times I left tasks to the last minute or would forget the important academic things. I still graduated with a good GPA but I wanted it to be higher.
