Why you chose your major
I picked my English major because I have always had a passion for reading and writing. I love taking apart and analyzing a text and looking for a deeper meaning. I chose my history and classics majors because I have always had a fascination with history and the past, especially ancient history. At first I was unsure about adding multiple majors, but the classes at UNL in each major were so fun and interesting that I did not want to stop taking them, so I decided to just have all three as my majors so I didn't have to pick between them, and my advisors helped me so that having three majors wouldn't be as stressful as I thought it would be.
Favorite and/or most impactful course
My favorite course in college so far was the Harry Potter and Social Activism class. It was so much fun to analyze Harry Potter as a text since it is something I really loved as a kid. It was also super fun for my homework to be reading Harry Potter instead of a textbook! I loved that the class gave me an outlet to engage in social activism, and I thought it was really interesting how we connected that activism to the world of Harry Potter.
Research or internship experience
Unfortunately I have had no research or internship experiences so far, but hopefully I will in the future!

Why you chose Nebraska
I decided to come to Nebraska because I love the environment on campus and the amazing classes. Nebraska is unique in that it has the resources and opportunities of a very large school while the community feels like a small school, and I never feel alone on campus. Additionally, the faculty here are extremely dedicated and friendly, and the classes that UNL offers are super fun and engaging.
