What’s your favorite thing about being an honors student?:
Learning by playing and traveling the world.

What’s your favorite thing about Greensboro?:
The life and history of downtown. I feel special walking down the street and touching the old buildings and jumping over the train tracks. This city has a soul.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?:
I would go to Hong Kong. I studied abroad there and now my friends are struggling and protesting. I’d love to give them a hug. Other than that I’ve already seen the Great Wall of China and I would like to see the pyramids, the Taj Mahal, and Christ the Redeemer Statue.

My advice for prospective Honors students is:

  1. Trust yourself. Changing your mind or major is not a mistake or a failure.
  2. Sleep.
  3. Study abroad. Life is precious; don’t waste it.
  4. Go to the UNCG Counseling Center. Trust me.
