Greenville Senior High School
Career plans: I will be working as a Process Improvement Engineer at Milliken & Co in upstate South Carolina following graduation.
UofSC Story: My first weekend visiting UofSC, I played frisbee with a bunch of scholars I had
only met the day before and one of them told me I should consider playing frisbee
at college. I laughed it off at the time but when the fall came around, I signed up
for club ultimate and it has been the greatest decision I've made during my years
here. The club frisbee community has been my closest group of friends, given me the
best memories and helped me grow into a better version of myself. My best friend and
roommate is a girl I met freshman year from the frisbee team and I probably never
would have met her if Dean Lynn hadn't told a story about frisbee on my first night
on campus. You never know how the smallest things can have such a huge impact on your
Most impactful experience: My internship during the summer of 2021 had a huge impact on me, both professionally
and personally. I learned so much about the environment I enjoy working in, made multiple
meaningful connections and was given many opportunities to reflect on myself and what
I want for my future. I would never have had that opportunity if internships and co-ops
hadn't been encouraged so heavily so I'm extremely grateful to have been able to go
to a university that pushed me to really apply myself.
Best part of the Top Scholars program: I love the community that comes with being a Top Scholar. It doesn't matter if you're
on different paths or haven't talked in months, any time you say hi to a fellow Top
Scholar, they are happy to see you and catch up.
