What life lessons did you learn while at UGA? 

Through access and exposure to information ones scope of understanding is widened drastically. If I can see more, I can believe more. If I can believe more, I can achieve more.

What do you most value in your friends? 


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

 I think growing up with a father would have helped me better understand that men can cry too. I believe that would’ve made me more empathetic.

Who are your favorite writers? 

Kurt Vonnegut because of his whimsical delivery on catastrophic topics. Langston Hughes because of his ability to capture his feelings in the moment and distribute them in a way they last forever.

Fave social media and who to follow? 

I’m not a huge fan of social media.
