My least favorite question has always been, “What is your favorite subject?" Usually I just begin rattling off my entire schedule. Sometimes I will try and pick a random one, confidently stating “Math,” but always end up quietly throwing in “Spanish, English, and History too.” I’ve always had many academic interests, and that was one of the reasons I chose UT. Here, I have been able to pursue a major in business while still receiving a liberal arts education. Every day my brain is challenged in diverse ways. Through both academics and extracurriculars, I have unique learning experiences every day here on the forty acres.

What drew you to the Forty Acres Scholars Program (FASP)? 
What drew me to the Forty Acres Scholars Program was the opportunity to surround myself with the other amazing scholars. Each day I have been able to learn from and interact with motivated, high-caliber people. The Forty Acres Scholars Program has introduced me to incredible lifelong friends that will no doubt change the world one day.
