High School Experience: Public school in Warner Robins, GA with a graduating class of about 500 students. There was a culture of going to college but the colleges that people went to usually weren’t of Georgia Tech’s caliber.
First-Generation College Student: No
Extracurricular Activities: I’m in the Boxing club and I work as a teaching assistant.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience? In what ways?
This is my first semester working as a TA, but it’s already had such a huge impact on my experience here. Every time I finish teaching I’m glowing and it has helped me realize that I want to become a professor. Having the opportunity to teach before making career decisions has really helped me along the way. Boxing is something I did just for exercise but has given me insight into a whole different culture that I didn’t know about.
