Why Georgia Tech:

“I chose Georgia Tech because it was one of the only schools that allowed me to get a dual economics and international affairs degree, and it’s located in the heart of an amazing city. I knew I loved this place from the moment I toured, and I’m so glad I trusted my gut. The opportunities I have been afforded have exceeded my expectations beyond words.”

Proudest Achievements:

“I am really proud of the contributions I have been able to make through student government. As the Student Government Association’s executive vice president and in previous roles, I feel empowered to talk to administrators to make real change on campus. My team and I started the Midtown Free Fridge project at Grace House, which is a community fridge on campus with fresh food available 24/7. I’m proud of the way we have centered real student needs throughout all our advocacy, and I really do feel like I have taken small steps toward making life at Tech better.”

Advice for the Next Generation:

“My advice to the next generation of women at Tech is to invest in each other. The people and women around you are the people who will go on to be your best friends, and the people you’ll see in the news someday making history. Tech can feel like an isolating place sometimes, but the people really are what makes it special. It’s important to show up for each other and always make time for your friends, no matter how busy you get with school. In ten years, you won’t remember that one chemistry assignment, but you’ll be glad you stayed close with your friends from college.”
