Most Memorable SPIA Class Moment?

My most memorable SPIA class moment wasn’t really a moment but really a phenomenal study abroad experience through the GLOBIS program in Stellenbosch, South Africa. I learned so much on that trip about myself and my understanding of the world and I appreciate Dr. William Finlay and Dr. Markus Crepaz for creating that opportunity at UGA.

My Top Three Career Tips
  1. Be confident but aware that there is still so much more to learn about the job market and being in the workforce
  2. Apply for anything and everything that remotely interests you and take chances on the opportunities you pursue
  3. Be patient and understand that success and any long-terms goals won’t be achieved over-night

Favorite Athens Haunt & Getaway

My favorite Athens hangout is a toss-up between Ike and Jane’s and any Jittery Joe’s café. They’re both such chill places to get work done or meet up with a friend.
