Why you chose your major

I have always had a love of history from a young age, and my favorite class freshman year was a political science class.

Favorite course

POLS 260: Causes of War because it combined historical examples, political theories, and future scenarios.

Research, education abroad, or internship experience

I studied abroad in Krakow, Poland for a month during the summer of 2019. The class focused on challenges to democracies across the globe. Krakow was a beautiful historical city that I loved!

Other involvement

I am involved with the Intelligence Community Scholars Program and serve on the social committee. I help plan events, organize banquets, and communicate with the group.

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose UNL because it offered me an affordable option for a great education.
