Q: What was your favorite part about your college experience?
My favorite part about JSU is the people I have met, and the independence I have gained.

I plan to teach at a school in the Autauga County School System, Alabama.

Q: Why are you thankful your parents planned—and saved—for your college education?
I am thankful that I got the advantage of going to college because it opened up a lot of career options for me, and it has helped me to be the best me I can be in a particular career field. My CollegeCounts 529 Plan and the scholarship I received from JSU will allow me to graduate with a just a little bit of debt.  For that, I am very grateful.
