My name is Brittany and I am a Transfer student to UWM. I plan on majoring in Journalism with a minor in Political Science. I graduated from a small high school in Hastings, Minnesota. After graduation I headed off to a private college in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I soon realized that although it was a great school, it just wasn’t for me. I couldn’t imagine spending four years of my life doing something that I wasn’t in love with knowing that I had the chance to make a change. That’s how I ended up here, at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Leaving for school will not be as hard for me as it will be exciting. Saying goodbye to loved ones is always a difficult thing to do, but I have already been on my own for around two years so I am used to it. Since I have been in-between schools that are hundreds of miles apart, I haven’t had a permanent place to live all summer! I have been staying with different family members and friends every night. It will be so nice and relaxing to finally have my own room again! I decided that since I have been working so hard in school and doing well, I would splurge on myself and get a single room in the residence halls. Last year I had a triple so this will be a big change for me.
I love all things art. I am mostly into photography and ceramics, but I love anything crafty. I love to travel, and although I haven’t had the chance to go many places yet, I am constantly planning trips that I would like to take in the future. I have been learning Spanish for 6 years and I have just started to teach myself French.
The next time I write I will most likely be writing from my new home. Until then, enjoy your summer and good luck packing!
