What do you wish you had known when you were starting college?
I wish Iâ€™d known that it was okay to go to professors for help. I learned this fact along the way, but it took me a few semesters. Professors are not scary, and they really do want to help their students learn and master the material. I also wish that I realized sooner how much learning can happen outside of the classroom. Get involved, and keep an open mind.

What are some your favorite things to do around Birmingham?
I love living in Birmingham. And whatâ€™s not to love, with all of the wonderful restaurants, outdoor green spaces, and the Birmingham Museum of Art! So, donâ€™t go home on the weekends. Embrace your new friends and your new home away from home.
