I have a wide range of interests from popular music and popular culture to my favorite hobby, golf. I have been playing golf competitively since the age of twelve and have continued to enter in amateur tournaments since I am no longer affiliated with a team. I played all four years in high school and placed second in the State AA Championship my sophmore year and third my junior year in the same event, in both instances I led my high school to state championships.
I have always had a great interest in writing and reading, mostly literature from the early twentieth century. Most recently, during an internship in Guadalajara, Mexico, I kept a blog that was picked up by a local newspaper, The Moultrie News, and published in their travel section. This led to my current contributing intern position at The Charleston City Paper.
A more recent interest has been that of business and finance, primarily investing. In the fall of 2009 I joined Student Finance and Investment Club (SFIC) at the College of Charleston in order to better understand the market system and ways to achieve financial security through investment.
I enjoy traveling and the educational opportunity of meeting people and exploring new cultures . I spent a semester abroad in the Netherlands where I took classes in Psychology, Sociology, and Dutch. In the summer of 2010 I received a scholarship to intern in Guadalajara, Mexico. I thoroughly enjoyed my first trip to Mexico as an intern for COLABORE, a social project that serves as a link between disabled Mexicans and potential employers. Ultimately, I am interested in the world's people, their perspectives, and their interactions.
