As I sit on the couch admiring the editorial conglomeration of magazine clippings, online periodicals and past Her Campus pieces, I am struck by the unwavering determination of Hannah Kay Hunt, former Her Campus Wake Forest editorial campus correspondent, who, in this moment, is frantically attempting to put together a professional online portfolio for future employers. Hannah Kay (or HK as she is known to many) is from the small town of Bell Buckle, Tennessee (yes, it’s a real place), but knew from a young age that bigger things were waiting for her beyond the corn fields and herds of cattle (ok, that might be a bit dramatic). A soon-to-be-graduated senior, Hannah Kay somehow finds time in her crazy schedule to sit down with me and reflect upon her past four years at Wake Forest.
The thing about talking with Hannah Kay is, you can’t go more than a few minutes without laughing. As anyone who knows her well will tell you, her biting sense of humor and caustic wit are HK-trademarks. Ironically, Hannah Kay began her time at Wake Forest with an interest in chemistry and HES, hoping to enter the medical sector and become a doctor. However, after an unsuccessful go-round in the Science department, she decided to re-evaluate her passions. And so began her path to greatness.
