I do photography (mostly as a hobby, but I do freelance work and take headshots and graduation photos). I like to paint (I did art for several years, but now I just do it for fun). I play piano and I enjoy spending time with my beautiful friends and sorority sisters. I like to hike and go on adventures (especially in the mountains), and I like to read (my favorite book is "A Tale of Two Cities").
My favorite spot in Lakeland is Black & Brew! I love their toast and coffee, and it's a great place to go study or hang out with friends. I'm excited for the new location that they are planning on opening closer to campus!
When I first visited Florida Southern, I fell in love with it for its academic programs, small-college feel, and location, but the aspect that really set it apart from the other colleges I was looking at was the community. Florida Southern is such a positive, loving place, and I wanted to be a part of that.
My favorite class was my honors public speaking course last semester. There were only eight of us, so it was a very close-knit and supportive little group. We talked a lot about things we were passionate about, and at the end of our semester, our final speech was a 20-minute presentation on something we would like to change on our campus. My partner and I chose recycling. I loved that class because I saw a lot of growth in myself and my public speaking skills and because it helped me discover and develop my own opinions on several topics.
