Major: Elementary Education
Hometown: Greenville, SC
A major passion of mine, and something that describes me is music. I have played the violin for thirteen years and the piano for seven. Music has always been a major part of my life and continues to be today. It was through music that I was actually introduced to Clemson University. I participated in the All-State Senior Honors Orchestra for three years of high school, and for one of these years the festival was held at Clemson University. I also won the Clemson University Orchestra’s Solo Concerto Competition my junior year of high school and received the opportunity to perform with the Clemson University orchestra.
Music has always been a major passion of mine, but it was not what I wanted to do with my life. I believed I was called to do something different. Because of this, I enrolled in the Teacher Cadet course (Intro to Education) my junior year of high school. While taking this course, I instantly fell in love with teaching and with the education field. It was because of my passions for children and leadership that drew me to the Moore Scholars Program. I wanted to invest myself in every educational opportunity available to me concerning my field. This program is giving me insight and opportunities that will greatly help my educational experience.
