My name is Jill Derrick, and I am an Integrated Marketing Communications major at Winthrop University. I am from a small town in South Carolina, called Batesburg-Leesville. I take pride in the fact that I know nearly everyone who lives in my hometown, and, while some say it’s a curse, I believe it’s a blessing. I play for the Winthrop University Softball Team, and I am currently serving as a peer mentor for first-year students. I consider myself a very outgoing person, and, while I love one on one communication, I recently discovered I have a huge love for writing.
