I am originally from Wisconsin and spent the first 12 years of my life there before moving to Georgia. I enjoy reading biographies and novels (especially anything by Michael Crichton), traveling the world, and speed solving Rubik's cubes (around 11 seconds). I wrote book reviews for YALSA and legal arguments/interviews for Mock Trial throughout my high school years, as well as case briefs for an international law class last semester at UNG. I am also currently taking a journalism course at UNG this semester. My first article will revolve around language immersion in a foreign country, and how beneficial that experience is in learning a new language and becoming exposed to a new culture. I expect to continue to meet deadlines while balancing other obligations, having successfully accomplished that throughout my freshman year. I am currently involved in the Model United Nations Club, which is being taught as a class this semester. I am also the Intramural Chair for the Honors Program. I believe that my many experiences traveling both domestically and abroad have significantly improved my knowledge of the world and of other cultures around the world, and would be beneficial at a college that prides itself on its international affairs department and international students. I plan on sharing my articles primarily through Facebook and on Twitter; I would also email them to friends and family who do not live in Georgia.
