2017 MA NML Student of the Year

Area of interest: Nonprofits with a sports focus.

Activities while at UGA: Community outreach intern at Helping Mamas, the baby supply bank of metro Atlanta for families in need. I also work at Ivivva in Atlanta and have my own freelance graphic design/photography business. Volunteered at Hands On Atlanta and with Athens Church. Currently in the process of writing a book.

Proudest accomplishment as a student: During my undergraduate studies I wrote a paper about leadership and was chosen to eat dinner with Archie Manning, the famous football player. I also completed four years of hard but rewarding work with the Southern Leaders program, a leadership program designed to engage students in an interactive leadership experience throughout their college career.

Post-graduation plans or goals: I plan to work for a nonprofit in Atlanta, preferably with a sports organization within the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, or an organization that focuses on empowering young girls.
