When do you plan on graduating? Spring 2020

Why did you major in History, Political Science, and Democracy and Justice Studies? I started out as a history major with the intentions of becoming a high school teacher. I decided I was more interested in research than teaching high school. In that interest I decided to take a course to test out the DJS waters. After taking Historical Perspectives, I decided I needed to add a DJS major. Shortly following this decision I upgraded my previously declared political science minor to a major. The three majors compliment each other as they encompass many angles of study.

What are your plans for after graduation? I plan to do research and analysis.

What academic experience or accomplishment are you most proud of?

In my senior seminar in history we created a website on W.E.B. DuBois and I was a project manager.

What single thing do you hope to accomplish at UWGB before graduating? I hope to have an internship with local government.

What do you do for fun? I like to listen to music and go for walks or go out to dinner with friends.

What else do you want people to know about you? I am an intern with the Voyageur this semester and over the summer I was an intern at the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
