In fifty words or less, describe yourself.
Georgia Tech has not only become my school, it has become my home. Each day here is full of incredible people, opportunities, and traditions that I love. Between seeing friends and designing to my hearts content, I love cheering on the Jackets and making people smile.
What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?
One of the most interesting projects I got to work was in a goup-focused class where we got to make an Android mobile app from scratch! While my main focus is design, it was so interesting to see how all of front-end design relies and builds on the back-end coding process.
What are your professional goals?
I would love to work somewhere that allows me to use my love of technology and graphic design to make something people will enjoy.
In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.
