About Me: When I first walked into the Honors College house, I knew it was where I wanted to be. I wanted to become an Honors College ambassador so that others can feel the love and camaraderie that the Honors college has given me. The smaller classes allow for a sense of academic camaraderie and friendships. One of the biggest things I was worried about was forum; but, it turned out to be one of the coolest things. This is because it allowed me to expand not only my cultural awareness but also made me aware of how many talented and intelligent people are a part of USM. I know that when I graduate in three years that I will have great friends and great memories from being in the Honors College. Speaking of graduation, after I graduate, I plan on pursuing some form of a master's degree in Vocal Performance. The end goal is to be performing opera around the world. I love the feeling of connecting with the audience and people, which is why I wanted to be an Honors College ambassador. Even though I have big plans, I know that Southern Miss and the Honors College will always have a piece of my heart. Southern Miss Honors College: To The Top!
