Major: Political science and religion joint major
Post-graduation plan: Summer internship at the U.S. Department of Justice; law school at Harvard University or Stanford University
Career and life plan: "I want to work as an attorney, maybe in the Department of Justice. I did my honors thesis on drug courts, which divert people convicted of drug-related crimes into treatment. That has gotten me interested in specialized courts."
Motto: "Be active now, be friendly, be compassionate."
A major accomplishment at Emory: "I brought back the yearbook and acted as executive director."

Emory's role in achieving her goals:

"Emory has been eye-opening in terms of cultural exposure. Coming from a rural public high school in Tennessee, I've enjoyed meeting people I wouldn't have met otherwise. I have learned as much through community service and talking to people as I've learned academically."
Most inspiring teacher and course:

Joyce Flueckiger, "Modern Hinduism."

"That class expanded my worldview [and gave me] a deeper understanding of morality and ethics and life and death--everything that's important."
