Incoming first-year Daniella Vivas knows exactly what wants to study. Since high school, the Peachtree, Georgia, resident has known she had a knack for the written word.
“It started my sophomore year when a teacher that I really respected suggested that I try writing for the school newspaper,” said Vivas, a graduate of Starr’s Mill High School.
Since then, she’s been hooked. While she enjoys writing hard news stories, she also likes the sometimes-lighter side of news such as feature stories that dig deeper. She hopes to become involved with the Georgia College student newspaper The Colonnade while on campus.
“I definitely want to see what opportunities there are for me while I’m here and take full advantage of them, wherever they might be,” said Vivas.
She also wants to try her hand at intramurals. As tennis player in high school, she fell in love with the sport. Now, she wants to continue that in college.
“I loved playing tennis in high school so I definitely want to keep up my athletic ability,” said Vivas.
Roberto Vivas, her father, says he wants her to keep up with her beloved sport as well, but is just happy that she’s found the right fit for her next step in education.
“Like every dad, I’m excited for her in this next step in continuing her education,” he said. “I can’t wait to see everything she’ll do here.”
