Student Stories



Greensboro, Georgia




Pharm.D. Candidate

Why did you choose to attend UGA?
I chose UGA because I knew I would have unlimited opportunities here. Through the Honors Program, CURO, and now pharmacy school, I've been able to pursue new things that I never thought would be possible!
What is your most memorable UGA experience or memory?
My most memorable experience at UGA was getting my acceptance letter for pharmacy school. While definitely exciting on a personal level, it meant so much more to be able to share that experience with all the people here at UGA who had been supporting me and encouraging me ever since I first arrived on campus.
What is your favorite campus setting and why?
I love looking out one of the windows on the upper floors of the Miller Learning Center so that I can see the football field and all the activity going on around Tate Plaza. Being in that spot encompasses everything that represents UGA to me, from football to studying and all the hustle and bustle that comes with attending a large university!
What student organizations are you involved in?
While at UGA, I've been involved in Relay for Life, Pre-Pharmacy Society, Academy of Student Pharmacists, Christian Pharmacists Fellowship International, and
What are your career plans/aspirations?
Beyond being a pharmacist, I'm really not sure! I love many aspects of pharmacy, and I don't know how I'll pick one to focus on for a career, but I know I'll be prepared for anything!
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself practicing pharmacy and helping improve the lives of my patients, no matter what area of pharmacy I'm working in. And I'll always be a faithful Dawg, giving back to the UGA community!
How will you make a positive difference in the world?
I believe truly loving people is the best way to make a positive difference in the world. When you love people, things like service become much more natural and easy to incorporate into everyday life.
What message would you like to send to alumni and friends who support UGA financially?
Thank you!! Without people like you, so many students like me would be unable to have the amazing experiences UGA offers to its students and community. I am so grateful! Go Dawgs!
Names of scholarship awards you have received?
-College of Pharmacy Faculty Scholarship -Albert W. Jowdy Scholarship
What has your scholarship meant or enabled you to do?
Receiving scholarships like these further enriches my UGA experience because it means I am able to pursue my dreams while having an alleviated financial burden! I am able to put that money towards aspects of my education other than tuition, like textbooks, so that I can get the most out of all my classes!
