Clubs/Organizations you were a part of at GGC: During my tenure at the college, I did not hold any office or rankings in any clubs or organizations. I did, however, participate in volunteer happenings at the college and in the local Gwinnett community.

How has GGC helped prepare you for where you are today? 
GGC provided me with tools and knowledge to succeed. I had access passionate and professional instructors who had a sincere interest in my future goals. GGC prepared me by sharpening my skills to ensure I could be useful in leaving a lasting impact on my community.

Favorite memory about GGC: My favorite memory aside from my commencement ceremony was the Intersections panel discussions held through the week and concluding on the weekend during the year. I loved the variety of topics discussed each year and the array of speakers. These events were extremely diverse – from topics to speakers – and it gave me a great opportunity to meet students and professors to openly discuss their work after the presentations.
