Get to know Rinn

I am passionate about...Fighting for those with invisible illnesses, spending time with family and friends, and advancing in my degree
I am interested in (affiliated student organizations/groups on campus)...Dance Marathon, Campus Cru, and interning for UAB Dining!
Favorite thing to do in Birmingham?I love studying at and trying new coffee shops!! I have an entire bucket list of coffee shops in the bham area, and I try to go to a new one every couple of weeks to study at, alone or with friends!
Favorite UAB memory?My second week at UAB, I turned 18 in a city I had just moved to, with almost no friends. My plans for the day had been cancelled, and I was feeling extremely homesick. I got a text from one of my friends I had connected with on Instagram before coming to UAB, inviting me just to come hang out in her dorm room. When I went into the room, the entire room was decorated, there was cake and pizza, and all of her roommates and suite-mates were there to throw me a mini-party. It was the first moment on campus I had felt 100% at-home at UAB, and knew I had made the absolute correct decision in committing.
Something I am looking forward to at UAB is...graduating knowing that I am the best possible prepared to move forward in the future, and get to see a future generation of Blazers take on their futures!
