Why did you choose to attend UWF?
UWF makes me feel like a person and not a number.

What do you like best about UWF?
All the incredible people that study, work and interact with the university that I have had the pleasure of meeting.

What do you do in your spare time?
I don't have a whole bunch of free time between Student Ambassadors, my incredible job, sorority sisters, Student Government, writing my honors thesis and being a UWF Cheerleader.  When I do, I love to spend it with the people I love, going out for adventures!  My most favorite thing to do is be spontaneous!  However, I have found that the true joy I experience in life comes from doing things for others.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a prospective student interested in UWF?
I originally went to a large state school.  I loved it there but it didn't tak long before I decided to transfer to UWF.  I was not able to learn in large classrooms where my professors didn't know me.  I needed smaller class sizes and personal attention to learn.  I encourage prospective student to make sure your learning needs coincide with the institution of your choice. 

When you get to college, GO TO CLASS.  Once you start skipping, even if it is just one time, it makes it hard to stop.  Also, I firmly believe there is more to college than just going to class, even though that is the most important part.  I encourage all students to get involved in an organization to develop leadership and time management skills for the future, and to make long lasting friendships with fellow students.

What do you hope to do after you graduate?
After college, I hope to attend graduate school to get my masters and PhD in something, hopefully political science, and then go work for the foreign service if they will have me.  Ultimately, I want t make the world a better place than I found it by working hard and playing to my strengths, but I plan to have lots of fun along the way!

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
New Zealand
