What is the hardest lesson you’ve had to learn in life so far?

The hardest lesson I’ve had to learn is probably that things change you know? And you just have to accept that and go with the flow. You have to take things as they go and roll with the punches. This definitely applies in college because sometimes I don’t really know what I’m doing. So right now I’m just rolling with the punches. Cause I’m a mess sometimes.

What has been the best and worst thing about college so far for you?

I think the best thing is the freedoms and new experiences you have. Being so far away from home [Maryland] forces you to grow, experience new things outside of your comfort zone. I feel like I’ve already been growing a lot. The worst thing is probably being so far away from home and all of the uncertainty of what my future is going to be like. 

What do you wish you could change about UNCW?

I wish there were more places to eat.

What’s one thing you wish you could change about the world?

I want to work with children, specifically orphans. I feel like that’s one of my biggest passions. I just want every child to know that they’re loved, and I want them to have a loving home as well as people to take care of them. I know a lot of children are lacking that, so I’d try to start with children and see that every child is raised in a loving home that had people to support them. I feel like the world would be a better place after that. They’re the next generation.

Do you feel like because they’re the next generation, that’s why you want to help them so bad? Or is this some sort of internal feeling because you sympathize with children the most?

I think I just sympathize with them the most because their entire lives depends on the people who guide them. I wouldn’t be able to be the person I am today if I didn’t have the support and love from my parents.
