Why did you choose Gordon State College? I love the campus, I love the faculty, and I love how inexpensive it is to attend here. Small classes where professors know me by name, not as a number. Professors bring their passion, they bring enthusiasm, and they bring a healthy challenge and rigor.

What do you plan to do after graduation? My plan is to intern for a studio in Atlanta writing for television as I get my foot in the door to write my own shows and movies.

What activities are you involved in on campus? I am a Gordon Orientation Leader, a writing tutor in the Student Success Center, a member of the Honors Program, and typically attend the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in April.

Where is your favorite study spot? The library, second floor near the large classrooms, away from the window because there are too many distractions. I also like the first floor of the library between the reference section and the second set of computers. I need a large table to spread out on.

Where is your favorite hangout? I really like the sitting area of the SARC and the amphitheater.

Favorite comfort food? My grandmother’s chicken and rice.

What is your favorite book? The Count of Monte Cristo, a tale of love, loss, tragedy, revenge, treason, and terrors.

What is your favorite line from a movie? “Perhaps, personally, I have no time for heroes.” -Dumbledore in Harry Potter.

Who would play you in a movie version of your life? I always say Morgan Freeman, but I wouldn’t mind Rupert Grint; I’ve always wanted to try being a ginger.

What is your favorite childhood memory? Going to the Air and Space Museum in Huntsville, AL.

Who from history would you like to meet? Pythia, high priestess of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi.

What is your favorite app? Spotify

Where is your favorite place to eat? Zaxby’s

What did you want to be when you were a kid? A scientist, until science married math.
