I am a rising first-year master’s student in history at The University of Georgia, having received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in December 2017. Although my academic interest in history is recent, my passion for learning about the past is anything but. Attending funerals as a little girl, I remember looking around and listening to eulogies, appreciating how one person’s life could touch so many others. Somehow in a single instant this person was connected to everyone through our shared experience: the human condition. The past has a funny way of revealing itself, and for me, it comes through studying the lives of the deceased. While I could bloviate on about how I came to be at this point, nothing speaks to my interests more clearly than how I am choosing to spend my own mortality. Check out my blog here!
