We met up with her to ask her some questions
Interviewer: What is one piece of advice you would give to a Freshman bulldawg?
Kelly: One piece of advice I would give to a freshman is to just enjoy every moment of their college career and be the best version of yourself. I know people say this a lot, but time really flies by so it is so important to make the most out of it!
Interviewer: Tell us a little bit about your internship experience
Kelly: I interned at a company called Active Cities when I was a junior and this past summer at a marketing agency called Veugeler Design Group. My biggest takeaway was how important the culture of a company is. At the end of the day, the people that you are surrounded by and that you see each day are what really makes the difference at a job and I know now that I want my coworkers to truly be my friends.
Interviewer: What about UGA will you miss the most?
Kelly: I will definitely miss being surrounded by my friends at all times. I have grown so close to people I have met here and it will be so hard to not see them every day.
Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Kelly: In ten years I hope to be married and starting a family. I also hope that I have settled into a job that makes me happy and I am working towards being promoted within that job!
Good luck to you in your future endeavors Kelly!
