Why did you choose to attend UGA?
UGA is the perfect University for me to receive an exceptional education while maintaining a social balance. The minute I walked on the campus, I knew that the University of Georgia is exactly where I belong. Even though I am hundreds of miles from home, I feel so at home and welcomed every time I am on UGA's campus.
What are your college career plans/aspirations?
I plan to be a correspondent for a major broadcasting company like CNN, MSNBC, or ESPN.
What would you say as a thank-you message to the University’s generous donors who
financially support your UGA experience?
To the generous UGA donors: From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for your generosity because, without it, I would not have been able to pursue a future as a Georgia Bulldog. As an out-of-state student, this scholarship meant the difference between me being able to attend the school of my dreams or settling for second best. I am able to work to achieve my goals because of people who are willing to give, people like you. I am forever indebted to your generosity. Sincerely, Annie Jorgensen
What kind of difference would you like to make at UGA or in the world?
As a student at UGA and citizen of the world, I hope to leave behind a legacy of honesty, integrity, and an admirable work ethic. I would like to lead by example to motivate the people around me to be themselves and work tirelessly toward their goals and aspirations.
