Why you chose your major

I really enjoyed English in school! I love to write, my grandma was a writer and she has really inspired me to pursue my passion.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

Global Literature- it was really eye opening to learn about different cultures and practices through classic works of literature. That class was so close knit we had amazing discussions every time.

Research or internship experience

Why you chose Nebraska

Everyone told me you would "just know" when you visited the right college for you and after visiting four other universities and feeling nothing I really didn't believe that was a thing. Then I visited UNL—on one of the worst weather days possible; the campus was closed because of all of the ice and snow. My parents and I scooted our way to the welcome center and we just listened to our tour guide talk about UNL and watched campus videos and as we were leaving I really had that knowing feeling of this is the place for me!
