Classification: Senior

Pronouns: She/her/hers

Tips for success within your major and college: "Stay on top of your readings. I'm a big advocate for to do lists and planners to help me stay organized with my assignments."

What I wish I knew as a freshmen: "Attend office hours if you need help with a paper or an assignment. Your professors want to help you and take advantage of learning from them and asking for help."

A campus office or service I recommend: "I would recommend the Writing Center. During my freshman and sophomore year, I would have a tutor revise my papers and I benefitted from their assistance tremendously."

Career goals: "Future educator!"

Major: English Literature and Economics

Classification: Sophomore

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Tips for success within your major and college: "Time management is a key component to success in the English major. Often times, you will be taking more than one English course a semester, so organizing your schedule and planning out times to read and write will be necessary to keep up with multiple assignments at once. It is also important to demonstrate your passion for English to your professors. Building good relationships starts with proving your dedication to your studies."

What I wish I knew as a freshmen: "Read, read, read. I learned quickly that it is important to keep up with your assigned readings, but reading for your personal enjoyment is also great for learning how to create your own writing style and implementing that in your classes. I wish I had designated more time to read my personal books and expand my reading tastes with different authors and genres."

A campus office or service I recommend: "The UNT Library is an incredible resource that I would recommend to anyone. Whether you are writing a research paper or need more knowledge of the subject you are discussing, the UNT Library is the perfect place to help you. It is also a great, quiet place to study during the day that provides a different atmosphere than a dorm room."

Career goals: "I intend to go to law school after my undergraduate and become a project finance attorney, dealing with the financial documentation and structuring of large infrastructure such as renewable energy power plants, airports, tollways and more."

Hobbies: "In my free time, I enjoy collecting books, practicing the viola, working with instant film photography, and gardening."
