In the summer of 2014, I enrolled in Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute (CCC&TI) in pursuit of an Associate of Arts degree so that I could transfer to a four-year university. While I was at Caldwell, I studied a wide variety of subjects including international relations, psychology, mathematics, and leadership development. By the spring semester, I was heading the Global Students Club on the Watauga Campus. The club itself was responsible for starting important conversations about globally devastating events, such as human trafficking. In the spring of 2016, the year I obtained my Associate of Arts Degree and graduated from CCC&TI, an Immigration Symposium that discussed the local and global impact of human trafficking alongside the problems faced by immigrants as a whole was held, largely orchestrated by the conversation the Global Students Club started on campus about human trafficking.
After I graduated from CCC&TI, I transferred into Appalachian State University (AppState) in the fall of 2016. I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History with a double minor in Leadership Studies and Psychology. I also joined the Pagan Student Association (PSA) during the fall semester, and I joined a second club, AppSpeaks, in the spring. In addition, I attended an Inclusive Leadership workshop for Sustained Dialogue, and I moderated a dialogue circle. At the end of the spring semester, I was elected President for PSA, and I volunteered to become part of the social media committee for AppSpeaks.
