Hometown: Birmingham, AL
Alma Mater: UAB
Education: BA in Communication Studies
What did you wish you had known when you were starting college?
I wish Iâ€™d taken an earlier advantage of the many academic resources at UAB to help me succeed, such as free university-wide tutoring, peer-help groups, and instructorsâ€™ meeting availability outside of class. It took me a while to understand that asking for help is a strength, not a weakness. Most importantly, I would have applied to school a lot sooner in the semester and retaken my ACT numerous times to make a higher score in order to be eligible for more scholarship opportunities.
You know youâ€™re at UAB whenâ€¦
...you see tall towering city buildings, construction (because we are always reinventing ourselves by building the next best thing to improve campus), and a mass amount of young people busily walking across campus while chatting with each other. I love that UAB has such a lively, diverse, welcoming environment.
What is your favorite thing to do around Birmingham?
I love going to the movie theater and checking out posh new restaurants. Plus, I have the most fun skating, playing laser tag, and driving the go-karts at Trussville Playstation. In the hot summer months I cool off at Splash Adventure Waterpark. In addition, Birmingham Fashion Week is an annual must for fashion addicts!
