I chose to attend Georgia State University because I love the location of the campus. I have always wanted to live in the city, and I felt like this was the perfect opportunity. I also chose Georgia State University because of the diversity of the students. We are all unique, but we accept one another for who we are.

Campus Activities and Organizations: Residential Emerging Leader Freshman Learning Community and 2011 Incept: New Student Orientation Team

Most Memorable Georgia State Experience: My most memorable Georgia State experience was the very first GSU football game. I have never seen so many people hyped up and ready to support their university. It amazed me to see the Georgia Dome filled with a diverse group of people who were all able to come together and share their love for their team and school. I’ll always remember the cheers when the team ran out on to the field for the very first time.

Favorite Georgia State Tradition: Rubbing the nose of the Pounce Statue for good luck.

What advice would you give to incoming students? No matter what major you decide on and no matter what classes, clubs, or organizations you end up joining, always remember to work hard and to chase after your dreams, because you are fortunate enough to receive the opportunity to do whatever your heart desires. Do not give up on this opportunity to be what you want to be, and do not miss out on the opportunity to discover the person that you will become.

After I graduate from Georgia State, I hope to become a Marketing and Advertisement Manager for a fashion industry in California. Eventually I plan on opening a small clothing store with merchandise that I have created. On the side, I hope to be a successful songwriter and composer for other people, and I also hope to be recognized for my own music as well. Whether it be big or small, I hope to make a difference in the world.
