Why you chose your major

I chose my majors because I wanted to study areas that not only fit together but also interested me.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

The course that made the biggest impact on me was Introduction to Global Studies. It made a big impact because the Professor expected a lot from each of her students not to punish them but to really make them learn and understand the information she presented. It helped me learn that I needed to put a greater deal of effort into my courses to fully understand and comprehend the information presented.

Research or internship experience

For research, I wrote a research paper as part of my History 250 course. I conducted research on the history of Japanese Americans at UNL and in the United States through the use of databases, newspapers, and other online articles.

Other involvement

I am also a member of OASIS and take part in events sponsored by the organization.

Why you chose Nebraska

I decided to come to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln because I believed it was the best place for me to achieve my academic goals and pursue what interests me.

Student Ambassadors group
