I am currently a junior at University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where I am studying History and Secondary Education. I lived in south Florida until about 8 years ago when I moved to the land of the pines. I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher and after some great history classes during my own high school experience, I knew that was the subject for me. I also lived in Czech Republic for five months and had the chance to travel extensively throughout all of Europe. Travelling made my passion for history and other cultures grow even stronger and I actually hope to spend some time teaching abroad in Southeast Asia or Europe after I graduate. I hope to spread my love of history, culture, and learning through teaching and really get my students to think critically about the world around them. During my free time, you can find me playing Ultimate Frisbee, daydreaming of my next travel, watching foreign films, eating cupcakes, or hanging out with my foster cat.
