Hometown: Duluth, Ga.

Favorite Hobby: Doing musicals at Panola Playhouse in Sardis. "Last spring I was honored to have the lead in 'Hairspray' and more recently the female lead in 'Little Shop of Horrors.'"
Why did you choose engineering?
"I chose engineering because I wanted a major that would challenge me and give me a wide range of opportunities when I graduate. I chose geological engineering specifically because I love being outdoors. I wanted a major that would take me outside the office and give me opportunities all over the world."
What do you plan to do when you graduate from Ole Miss?
"When I graduate, I would like to find a job that will allow me to travel, and possibly live, all over the world. My first choice would be to live in Italy since I have a minor in Italian language, and Italy is one of my favorite places in the world. I am open to any type of geological engineering job and am looking forward to wherever and whatever direction this major takes me!
