What would you like to do for a career upon graduation?

I would like to get involved in politics on some level to fight for Veterans’ rights. As a full time career, I would like to be a museum curator.

Why did you choose the major that you chose?

I love history and want to be able to pass my passion on to others and maybe spark a love of history in others that feel history is boring by showing them the fun in history.

What are some of your interests?

I love to tour historical sites with my family as well as competing with my friends in shooting. But over all I prefer to spend as much of my free time as I can with my kids doing whatever they want.

What is something about you that people would not normally know about you?

There is nothing I can think of that anyone that knows me would not know about me. I am very open and transparent with no secrets in my life.

Why did you choose USF Sarasota-Manatee?

At first I choose USF Sarasota-Manatee because of convenience. I live five minutes away from the school and wanted to go to a known school so it was an obvious choice. After my first couple of weeks I realized I was at the right school because it was so much better, in every way, than where I came from.

Would you recommend USFSM to someone else?

I definitely would recommend this University to everyone as long as their major is available here.
