Why you chose your major

I always struggled with deciding on a major. I have a lot of different interests that led me to a few different options. That's why I chose to major in Global Studies. There's no limits with this major. It allows to me achieve my main goal of learning more about the world and finding ways to help others, while giving me the opportunity to use my other interests. The major has a wide range of career options. This was important to me because there were many careers I was considering or interested in and I never wanted to feel as if I was stuck with one choice.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

My GLST201: Intro to Global Studies class has had the biggest impact on me. Not only was it a class that covered topics that I am interested in and passionate about, but I was also able to learn a lot more about my major. I was shown how many opportunities and pathways I can choose from when I graduate. The class definitely helped open my eyes to how many options I had and provided me with the tools that will help me get to my desired career path.

Research or internship experience

I have not had any research an internship experience yet but I hope to in the future.

Other involvement

I am currently involved with Young Life.

Why you chose Nebraska

Ever since I started thinking about college, I knew I wanted to be a Husker. I've loved the environment and how welcoming everyone is at UNL.
