University of South Carolina, BA in German and Anthropology

About Me: I'm originally from Georgia and was a transfer student to UofSC where I completed my the last two years of my undergraduate degree in 2015. School work, playing in the Carolina Band, and working night shifts at the Marble Slab that was located in Russell House took up most of my time. After graduation, I was a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Germany and I returned to Columbia to start "real life." When I'm not at work, I spend my time taking kickboxing and jiu-jitsu classes, hiking, gardening, baking, crocheting, trying new coffee places, and unsuccessfully attempting to snuggle with my cat, Cletus. 

Favorite Spot On Campus

I love any place on campus where there are nice plants to look at, particularly Japanese maple trees!

Length of Time at UofSC

Since September 2018

Favorite Gamecock Moment/Best Part about being a Gamecock

I'm not sure that I could pinpoint one moment but any time playing with the Carolina Band in Williams-Brice is hard to beat. The atmosphere and sense of community are what makes being a Gamecock great, both in and out of the stadium!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
