An accomplishment you are proud of: I'm proud of myself for coming out of my shell at Sweet Briar. Freshmen year, I was worried about not being around the same group of friends I grew up with and not finding a place/group at Sweet Briar like I had in marching band at home. I've learned so much about myself in the past two and a half years. I've become a leader in Outdoor Programs and several other groups on campus and met some of my best friends here.
