Madison, AL


Major: Political Science
Minor: Public Administration

Why did you want to become a DSA? I live in a southern state where I don’t often see people mixing and mingling with people that are different from themselves. So, I have always made it my mission to surround myself with people that are different from me. Over the years, I have learned new things from people with different economic, cultural, and social backgrounds. I want to apply the things that I have learned to an organization that is going to support my plans and ideas to get other students at UNA to educate themselves on the various cultures, social and economic situations in the world.
