Why did you choose to attend GSW?
It was close to home and affordable. My brother also went to school here so, it made sense that I transfer to GSW to finish my education.

Please list your University highlights, achievements, leadership and awards.

  • Student Engagement Desk Assistant (1 year)
  • GSW Drop (1 year)
  • Library Desk Assistant (1.5 years)
  • Dean’s List
  • 2021 GSW Drop Member of the Year

What’s your favorite spot on campus and why?
The GSW Drop office where I work and spend most of my time on campus is my favorite place. It’s a quite open area where me and most of my friends (coworkers) spend our time together.

What is your favorite memory or experience you’ve had at GSW?
Working for GSW Drop and the Library have been my favorite experiences. The people I have worked with are amazing. They made sure everyone was comfortable and we’re appreciated for all the work they do.

What have your learned (or are learning) that has made the biggest difference for you?
The people you associate with makes a big difference in your life. You will be surprised of how much it changes you and your mindset.

What advice do you have for incoming students?
Get involved on campus as much as you can. Obviously not everyone is an extrovert but there is still so much you can do and gain experience that will help you in the future.

Why did you choose your major?
I actually had to decide if I wanted to do IT or computer science because GSW didn’t have the major I was pursuing, but I’m glad I decided to go with IT Multimedia because I love art and am also every interested in computers, so it worked out perfectly for me.

What are your most-used emojis? Why do you think so?
My most used emoji would be 😂 because that’s usually how I respond to my friends on a daily basis when they send memes and TikTok videos.
