- Major: Politics & International Affairs
- Hometown: Charlotte, NC
During my two and a half years at Furman, I have had the opportunity to pursue my passion for law and public policy. I have had the privilege of interning at the National Federation of the Blind and in Senator Tillis’ Charlotte district office. During my sophomore year, I studied away in Washington, D.C. In addition to completing coursework with Dr. David Fleming, I interned at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. At Furman, I serve on the Advance Team for the Riley Institute, a nonpartisan institute whose efforts are dedicated to leadership, knowledge, and impact. I also hold various roles within the National Federation of the Blind on the state and national level that allow me to make an impact through policy and legislation.
In her own words...
“I have grown personally and professionally during the last three years at Furman. I attribute the majority of my growth to the professors in the Politics and International Affairs department who never waver in their support, encouragement, and tough love. The professors genuinely care about us as individuals, and they truly want us to succeed. My advisor, Dr. Fleming, was one of my professors my first semester at Furman, and I could not imagine my time at Furman without his support.”
