On May 2, 2015, I graduated from the University of Alabama. For four years I studied literature, creative writing, and French, all the while chasing that elusive red hat that designates a 4.0 GPA. It all paid off when I walked across that stage and heard the words "summa cum laude" announced after my name. I still can't believe it. These past four years have been absolutely incredible. I've performed around the country with the Million Dollar Band, studied abroad in France and Ireland, and interned with three different publications. I've met so many different people and made some awesome friends. There are truly no words to describe how amazed and grateful I am as I look back on my undergraduate years. Thanks to God, my family, and my friends for getting me through the long nights of writing papers. Special shoutout to Gorgas Library for letting me stay there late at night and providing quiet spaces and caffeinated beverages. Finally, congratulations to all my fellow graduates! We did it, y'all!!! Roll Tide Forever!
