Fun Fact

I watched (fellow ambassador) Braxton Ballard dance in front of everyone at freshman welcome.

Why did you choose UGA? 

Having a newly established engineering program at a renowned university allows students to pair their technical education with many other diverse opportunities. Knowing I wanted to major in engineering, my visit to UGA showed me that there was more than a commitment to obtaining an education, but one for learning, building a welcoming community, and establishing relationships that go beyond four years.

Favorite memory as a Bulldog Engineer?

Serving on the student panel at UGA's 2019 Administrative Retreat. It was a surreal opportunity to speak to UGA leadership about student mentoring, the role that organizations play in student development, and my experience as a Bulldog Engineer.
