Graduation Year: 2021
High School Experience: Public school in Fayetteville, GA with a graduating class of about 300 students. It was a Title 1 school, but my friends and I were tracked in the AP and Gifted classes.
First Generation College Student: Yes
Major: Women’s Studies, but I am in the process of changing it to Education
Extracurricular Activities: I’m most heavily involved in IMPACT-UGA, which is a service learning program that is very similar to an alternative break program. We’re student-run and lead service trips throughout the Southeast during breaks. I’m also a member of the Multiracial Student Organization that works with Multicultural Services and Programming. The last group I’m a part of is TRIO Student Support Services. As a mentor, I mentor a first-generation student and they have lots of events and activities that we can take part in.
Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
All three of them shaped my first year of college very positively. Coming from a small high school, they all helped me find a community because coming to a school as big as Georgia was a huge shock to me. They also helped me grow as a person.
