Why you chose your major
Gender equality was something I realized I am passionate about in high school and when I found out that I could actually major in WGS and make a career out of what I am passionate about, I knew I needed to.
My favorite course so far has definitely been Intro to Men and Masculinities Studies because I had the opportunity to learn about the ways hegemonic masculinity is detrimental to our society and to men, and how to combat that in my everyday life. It was not a class that I thought I would ever take, but I am so glad I did because I learned so much applicable content.
I am involved in YoungLife, which is a student ministry group, and I am the Volunteer Coordinator at the Women's Center.
Why you chose Nebraska
I knew I wanted to go out of state and Nebraska offered me a scholarship that allows me to attend for an in-state price, and I had never been to Lincoln before my tour but I fell in love instantly and knew this is where I belong. I also met with advisors on that visit, both for my major and for the College of Arts and Sciences, and they helped me realize that I would be able to completely customize my degree so that I can take classes I care about and am interested in, and still graduate in four years.
