What’s your favorite thing about being an honors student?:
My favorite thing about being an Honors student is that it almost forces me into uncomfortable situations by challenging me academically and as an individual. However, these same uncomfortable challenges are the ones that have helped me grow into who I am today and who I will become.

What’s your favorite thing about Greensboro?:
My favorite thing about Greensboro is the diversity of cultures that is found within the city. I enjoy exposing myself to new cultures and finding ways to immerse myself in them through unique experiences.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?:
I studied abroad to Shanghai, China this past summer and if I was given the opportunity to return, I would!

My advice for prospective Honors students is:
Take risks and do not be scared to fail. Besides, the feeling of failure is only temporary, what we learn through trial and error and how we overcome it is what matters the most!
