What is your favorite Auburn experience?

 My favorite experience at Auburn was studying abroad. I earned an international minor while studying in Italy for three months through The College of Human Science’s Joseph S. Bruno study abroad program in Ariccia, Italy. I remember that, by some miracle, a few spots opened up a few months before the program started, and I nervously said “Why not?” which turned into my favorite “why not” of my life. I cannot express enough how incredible that trip was for me and how much I learned about myself and the world around me. I am so thankful that Auburn enabled me to earn a minor, while also experiencing the most joyful and incredible times of my life abroad.

What are your future plans?

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has caused many companies to not only stop hiring people, but to actually lay people off. This is especially true for the types of places that I would like to work, which are talent agencies, entertainment venues, public relations agencies, etc. For this reason, I am at a standstill in the job-searching process. I am continuing to apply to as many companies as I can, knowing that it might be a while until these places are looking to hire new people. I am remaining hopeful and trusting that the right opportunity will come to me when the time is right!
