Athens, Ga.

I am a senior and Communication Studies major at the University of Georgia. I recently moved from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Canton, Georgia. I am a member of the UGA Club Cheerleading team and in my free time I enjoy painting and reading. I am one of four children, and really appreciate close family ties as I truly believe I wouldn't be who am I without them. I would love to travel the world someday, and find pleasure in knowing that my happiness can be narrowed down to a day at the beach.

When deciding a major, I landed on Communication Studies mostly for the fact that I have always loved to talk. I am interested in communications and how different forms of mediums can help connect many in unimaginable ways. My interest in Communication Studies sparked greatly when I realized the many classes I could take, in which I was able to dip my feet into the water on various topics. Courses ranging from Health Communication to Environmental Communication have helped me learn plenty about different aspects and dimensions associated with communications and I hope that future me will be able to effectively apply a specific emphasis of communications to a career.

My current program of study will help me accomplish my goals because it can help me expand my general curiosity and thirst for knowledge, while allowing me to choose which direction I would like to take my expertise. An aspiration of mine is to help people in any way that I can, so I hope that I can find a career path that will allow me to do so. My education gained through this university has sufficiently prepared me for the road ahead, and I believe this course specifically could further help me expand and understand different aspects that could serve as communication platforms, as the world around us is shifting quickly into a digital realm. I am unsure of what I want to do with my life when I graduate in May, but I do know that overall I would like to work in a career where I could help be a voice for those who need one and I believe my degree will adequately assist me in doing so.
