I am a graduating international business major studying at The University of Memphis who moved to this area for school nearly four years ago. I chose international business because I knew I wanted to travel, and you can do anything with a business degree. Although I did not know anyone when I first moved here, I quickly made friends with many of the amazing people in this city. I am currently interning in the strategic partnerships department at ALSAC, the principal fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

I love photography. I love to run. I love to eat local at places like the Slider Inn, Super Submarine Sandwich Shop, Ching’s Hot Wings, Las Delicias and Loflin Yard. I love visiting areas like The Highland Strip, Cooper-Young, Overton Square, Downtown, the Broad Avenue Arts District, the South Main Arts District and, of course, Beale Street. I love all the amazing coffee shops in this city, particularly Avenue Coffee, Belltower Artisans, Otherlands Coffee Bar, City & State, Tamp & Tap and Java Cabana. I love this town’s brewing companies, including Wiseacre, Ghost River, Memphis Made, High Cotton and Crosstown. I love getting some fresh air at Shelby Farms Park, Overton Park, Tobey Park, Altown Skatepark and Tom Lee Park. I love that Memphis is the most philanthropic city in the U.S. I love just being here.

Memphis reminds me every day to bring my soul—and without Memphis, I don’t know if I would have ever found my soul in the first place.
