Why Georgia State?
After moving from New York to southern Georgia, I wanted to be back in a city. I chose Georgia State because it was in the heart of Atlanta and was the first university I visited. Though Georgia State is not a traditional campus, after four years here, I have learned how to make the most of the many opportunities it offers.
What does being a first-generation student mean to you and your family?
From an early age I realized the importance of networking, managing resources, and prioritizing. These skills come from being a first-generation student and are essential as I continue my transition to becoming a postgraduate college student. I hope that one day I will be successful enough to be a resource for others and help them to achieve their dreams.
Please share a few interesting facts about yourself:
- I am a huge Yankees fan, but I can also cheer for the Braves as long as they are not playing the Yankees.
- I enjoy listening to country music and playing the guitar and piano in my free time.
- In the summer, I enjoy fishing and hiking with my family, although, recently, my summers have been occupied by research internships.
What has receiving the Janet S. & Ronald J. Henry Undergraduate Opportunity Scholarship meant to you?
This scholarship has meant that I can continue to put myself through college and possibly attend law school. With a chemistry background, I plan to become a patent attorney or practice in a field related to intellectual property law.
