She chose Macon State College because … “I knew that Macon State College had an excellent information technology department. It took me a long time to decide what path I wanted to take in life, but once I realized that information technology was the field that I wanted to study, I moved back home to attend Macon State. I wanted a school where I was not just defined by my Social Security Number, but actually by the person that I was."
The one thing that surprised her about Macon State was … “The small classroom sizes and the individual attention that I received from my professors.”
Her favorite professor was … “Elizabeth Riley was my favorite professor because I struggled immensely in computer programming I and she was always available whenever I needed help. She was very knowledgeable about her course content and I never dreaded going to her class. She made computer programming fun and easier to learn.”
One thing people don’t know about her is … “I lived in Germany for an entire summer running a camp for kids who had parents in the military.”
The one person she’d most like to meet is … “Lyndon B. Johnson, because I would love to talk to him about how he was able to do so much with civil rights in the 1960s while also dealing with the Vietnam War."
Five years from now she sees herself … “Working with special needs kids and technology.”
