Just to put the interesting facts out there first:
(1) I was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. (Now to answer general questions you might have that comes with knowing that fact):
(2) YES, I do come from a military family. Both of my parents were in the army for the first couple years of my life. Thus, I have had the wonderful opportunity to live in extravagant yet random places (such as Okinawa, Japan).
(3) I play piano for the university. It was my work-study job in addition to working at the library. I have been playing the piano since I was 6 years old and did not decide to learn how to read music until my sophomore year of college.
Background and Future expectations for myself:
(1) I double majored in Philosophy and Sociology here at Wake Forest.
(2) My short-term goals involve going to law school next year.
(3) My long-term goals are to either open the first law school in Alaska or a non-profit organization that assist a diverse group of students who are attempting to get into school or opening a non-profit that provides financial assistance to individuals in need similar to Crisis Control Ministry in downtown Winston-Salem.
Why did I want to be a fellow? Particularly the Library Fellow?
(1) I wanted to be a fellow because I wanted to take a year off before going to law school to reaffirm my interest towards going to law school. In addition, being a fellow at Wake Forest provides me the opportunity to stay in an academic environment to keep me motivated about going to school.
(2) Okay lets be real – the library is actually an awesome place. I can easily say I have the best fellow position among the others.
Feel free to meet with me just to chat, I love to talk and get to know people – it’s honestly my thing.
