Who Saw This Coming?


Did I think that I was going to be in this spot I am in now four years ago? Haha no… When I was in high school I originally wanted to go to Appalachian State, but sadly I did not get in there, so here I am. Another obstacle I faced is that I was coming to UNCW as a spring admit. I was skeptical to come here because I thought it would be weird to come in a semester later than everyone else, but it ended up being one of the best decisions of my life. Now, picking a major was a different story. I was never one of those kids who knew exactly what I wanted to do when I was older so I would get ideas from T.V shows. I started out here wanting to major in business because that is the only place I thought you could take marketing classes, but once I figured out I could go the Communication Studies path, I did not turn back. I have been in one club since the beginning of my sophomore year and that is the High Seas. The High Seas has really been a big part of my college experience and has turned me into the performer I am now. If you would have told me as a freshman coming into college that I was going to be singing or even talking in front of 1000 people, I would not have believed you at all. This major and this school has brought me out of my shell and I am so glad that I ended up making the decision to come here because this school is way better than I could have ever imagined.
