At the University of Mississippi, I will double-major in French and international studies in the Croft Institute for International Studies. After graduating from the University of Mississippi, I plan to attend law school. I would like to be either an international or human rights attorney.
Favorite memory from high school:
Following my freshman year, I went to Switzerland and Italy with my counselor, my fabulous French teacher and a few other students. I can vividly recall one afternoon when I was lying on the beaches of Lake Garda, eating the Italian version of a hot dog and talking to one of my best friends Olivia — that was pure bliss.
Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:
I have had the honor of learning from Ms. Rachel McLemore during my sophomore and senior years in AP United States History and AP Comparative Government and Politics. Ms. McLemore taught me the value of perspective; she taught me that I should never allow a single assignment or test affect my emotions for more than just a few minutes.
