Year: Senior

Major: Sociology

Hometown: Greensboro, NC

How have you personally used and benefitted from the Center for Career Development?

The Center for Career Development has helped me better understand my potential career paths and has given me a clearer understanding of the nature of a career. This has helped reduce some of my anxieties about finding a job or career that is right for me. Because a career is a constantly evolving process, it never moves in a predictable line from one thing to the next. Therefore, I feel better not always knowing what the next step is.

What are your future career goals?                

I would like to continue working as a Web Developer, moving on to more complex project work while trying to keep up with the latest technologies and platforms. In the future, I could see myself becoming more involved in other tech areas, such as app development and other interactive products. Beyond that, I have no idea!

What are some other extracurricular activities that you are involved in?          

In my free time, I mostly like to write and record music. I also enjoy the outdoors as a way to balance out all of the time I sit at a computer. Canoeing and biking are probably my favorite.

What is something unique about you?

I have the same birthday as Cardi B, but what makes this unique is that I don’t even brag about it.
