Occupation: MA Student, Latin American Studies, Tulane University
I was born and raised in Kings Mountain, NC, and graduated from Kings Mountain High School in 2015. I had planned to attend college as an architecture major until halfway through my senior year in high school, when I realized that I had fallen in love with my history classes.
North Greenville not only offered me the opportunity to study history under some incredible professors but also to run track and to play in the marching and concert bands. It is also where I met my best friends, who started out as my randomly appointed roommate and suitemates in Vandiver Hall.
During the summer of 2018, I spent ten weeks in San José, Costa Rica, with the Institute for Central American Development Studies’ summer internship program. While there, I interned with Fundación Mujer, a non-profit dedicated to supporting women in small business and providing refugee support services.
