Favorite Thing About Her Campus:

I love that there are chapters everywhere nationwide. It's always a good feeling to know you are a part of something bigger than yourself, but it's absolutely awesome to know that you are a part of something that big.

Favorite Article You’ve Written:

A Letter to My Single Mom

Favorite Punctuation Mark:

Period.

Best Advice You’ve Been Given:

To believe and have confidence in myself. It seems so simple, but we really underestimate how capable our minds and bodies are.

Your Definition of Collegiette:

I believe a collegiette is anyone who belongs to a college community.

Favorite Clemson Tradition:

I can't get enough of when the football players touch Howard's rock and run down the hill before every home game.

HC Writer Since: Spring 2016

 

Favorite Thing About Her Campus:

At Her Campus you can be as creative as you want. I can write about what I'm interested in at the moment, an organization that I want to bring more awareness too, or a current issue in the news.

Favorite Article You’ve Written:

My favorite article was "15 Beach Books to Kick Off Your Summer With". It felt great to recommend some of my favorite books to others and hopefully inspire someone to pick up and read something that they may never have read otherwise.

Favorite Punctuation Mark:

My favorite punctuation mark is the exclamation point because I always have to refrain from using it at least five times in an email, it makes everything seem friendlier.

Best Advice You’ve Been Given:

If you won't be stressing about it in five years, don't stress about it now.

Your Definition of Collegiette:

My definition of collegiate is a college woman who is not only beautiful and strong, but is driven to do better no matter what circumstance she's in.

Favorite Clemson Tradition: My favorite Clemson tradition is the rushing of the paw after the game. There's nothing like celebrating a Clemson win with 80,000 of your closest friends. Then, when we begin singing the Alma Mater and everyone puts their arms around each other, you really understand why it's called the Clemson family.

I love the fact that with Her Campus there is so much diversity regarding the different parts of life we find interesting and being able to write about those things gives people a window into our lives.

Favorite Article You’ve Written:

Favorite Punctuation Mark:

!

Best Advice You’ve Been Given:

The best advice I've been given is to bloom where I am planted! (Shout out to Dabo Swinney)

Your Definition of Collegiette:

My definition of a collegiette is a woman in college who is growing and learning who she is now and setting goals for who she will become in the future.

Favorite Clemson Tradition:

My favorite Clemson tradition is Solid Orange Friday, where every Friday Clemson students wear orange in support of our Tigers!

Favorite Thing About Her Campus:

I love the community that Her Campus promotes both locally and nationally. It’s a group of motivated and inspiring ladies, and I love that I get to head up a team of such go-getters!

Favorite Article You’ve Written:

My favorite article that I wrote is “A Little Sister’s Thank You to Her Brothers” because it was very personal, and I feel like it describes how much having older brothers can influence you as a person.

Favorite Punctuation Mark:

I’m a fan of the comma probably because I talk a lot, and when I write, I tend to create quite a few complex sentences. Commas allow you to keep going!

Best Advice You’ve Been Given:

“If it’ll be, it’ll be.”

Basically, if something is meant to happen to you, all you can do is your best, and the rest will fall into place.

Your Definition of Collegiette:

A collegiette to me is a strong individual who motivates herself and others. She wants to better the world, and she works hard to reach her goals.

Favorite Clemson Tradition:

I love the Clemson ring! I cannot wait to get mine because I feel like it unites the Clemson family, and it’s recognizable wherever you go.
