Why you chose your major

Nebraska does not currently have a Music Therapy program, which is my dream job, so I am forming my own path to help those who come after me. Psychology will play a large part of the job, and I am honing my musical skills for the technical part of the job.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

I thoroughly enjoyed Beginning Creative Writing with Mary Carter during my freshman year. I have always excelled in English classes but that's not why I liked this particular english class so much.

Professor Carter was as much an ally as she was a teacher. When I was going through a really tough time in my life, she noticed. She had taken the time to get to know me as a student and person, which can be rare in college when classes are so high in population. She made herself available to me as a resource and helped me be successful in my course. I would not have passed that semester with acceptable grades without her help.

Research or internship experience

I was selected as a specialty research assistant for a psychology research project currently happening, I can't speak much about the content of the project since it is active. I will say I am fortunate enough to be a part of something that will really make a change for college students and members of our community.

Other involvement

I am currently Vice President of the women's choir, University Chorale, and I am a brother and sub-chair woman in the business and professional development fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi- Zeta Chapter.

I am also a member of The Cornhusker Marching Band, I play the piccolo and represent a B1G 10 school during pregame with the B1G 10 Flags.

I am a W.H.T. scholar through the Susan Buffett Scholarship Program, as well as a tutor for the Psychology Department of CAS.

Why you chose Nebraska

Initially, I wanted to be involved in the Cornhusker Marching Band from a very young age, and as I grew up going to games, exploring the campus, and hearing stories of students that found their home here, I knew UNL would be the place for me.
