1. What made you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I have always loved learning and loved being in school. After graduating with my Bachelor’s in 2015 I missed the educational environment. After giving it a couple of years of thought, I decided to return to school to pursue a graduate degree in a field that I truly felt passionate about.
2. What’s the thing you love most about Chapel Hill?
I love the positive and welcoming atmosphere of campus. I feel supported in my decisions by coworkers, peers, and faculty, and I feel like everyone I interact with genuinely wants the best for all students on campus. That close, cozy feeling is hard to replicate and makes the transition much easier.
- If you had any advice for someone thinking about pursuing a graduate degree, what would it be?
If it’s something you’re passionate about, or something you’ve always dreamed of, just do it. Just apply for that program; don’t let your self-doubt hold you back. You never know where it might lead, and I can guarantee you’ll only regret it if you don’t try.
- What is your dream career after you’ve completed your studies?
After I obtain my degree, I would love to work in preservation or curation, whether that be in a museum, an archive, or at a university. I’m pretty open to anything.
