If I wasn't an Academic Advisor I would have been a photojournalist or a forensic anthropologist.

My majors in college were Culture & Deviance Studies and Humanities & Justice and I chose them because looking at what my future could potentially be, I realized that these majors best describe what I would like to be doing.  I have always been fascinated by culture, and I have always wanted to learn more about it.  I feel that these majors provide me with the best ways to maximize my undergraduate career and study culture to its fullest.  I also see myself as possibly being a professor or a lawyer in the future and I know that these majors will provide me with the skill set needed to pursue either profession.

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) Reaching out to professors is easier than you think.
2) Always be on the lookout  for what your college has to offer - there is always going to be something!
3) Making new friends takes time, and you'll find the right people eventually.

My favorite book is:
Frankenstein (Mary Shelley)

If my life had a theme song it would be Dancing on My Own by Calum Scott.
