1) What is your major?
2) Whom do you most admire at Georgia College and why?
The person I admire the most here at Georgia College is my great friend and colleague from the Student Government Association, Nathan Graham. Nathan is an incredibly dedicated individual who is great to have conversations with about pretty much anything. I cannot wait to see what he is able to accomplish in the years to come!
3) Why did you choose Management as a major here at Georgia College?
I chose Management as a major because I wanted to go into my career upon graduation knowing that I would have what it takes to be an effective leader, someone who people look up to as an example, and someone who isn’t afraid to make a decision. I wanted to be able to do all of these things throughout my career while still being an understanding and supportive human being, and as a result of my education here, I know that I will be able to accomplish many things and set others up for success.
4) What have you discovered about yourself while being here at Georgia College?
I discovered my passion for working with people from other countries. Georgia College has a phenomenal International Studies program! I was part of the International Club during my freshman year and I’ve been able to apply my personal experiences with these students and others I have met while abroad in most, if not all, of the classes I have taken at Georgia College. My new passion for working with these students even led me to meeting my now fiance’ from the United Kingdom. It was a total accident that we met.
5) What passions do you hope to pursue after graduation?
After graduation, I will be working in Logistics which is something I am extremely passionate about. In the near future, I hope to take the LSAT, attend law school, practice trade law and intellectual property law, and then work in international trade of some sorts. I hope to be able to give back to my community that I grew up in so that others will be able to share the same passion for their city, state, and country as I have.
6) What is one piece of advice you wish you had while being at Georgia College?
Don’t be afraid to take chances. We all make mistakes; some good, some bad. Sure, these four years will fly by, but life is an experiment in and of its own. You never know what you will be able to accomplish or create if you don't step outside your comfort zone and go against the established norms. Be the difference.
7)What is one piece of advice you would give to an incoming freshman who is also interested in Management?
Build a great relationship with your professors from the start! I have had the opportunity to have such great professors in my areas of study, and each of them has gone above and beyond to prepare me for a life of challenging yet rewarding work, especially the Logistics and Economics departments!
8) What was your favorite thing to do at Georgia College?
My favorite thing to do at Georgia College was going to Theta Chi socials.
