Aaliyah L.Aaliyah L.

Major: Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Early Care and Education

Graduation year: 2016

Hometown: Raleigh, N.C.

My personal motto is: Nothing worth having comes easy.

My goals are: To graduate college, be a positive role model, and eventually work with children and families as a career.

I selected UNCG because: I fell in love with the institution when I visited UNCG for the first time; the friendly, diverse environment drew me in.

My best UNCG moment: Finding out exactly where I fit in while I'm at my home-away-from-home and making the Dean's List for two years.

My biggest surprise at UNCG: The students and professors here are genuinely nice and willing to go out of their way to help others.

My favorite place on campus: College Avenue, because during the fall and spring there are so many events taking place and I always meet the coolest people while walking up and down the avenue.

On the weekends: I usually hang out with my friends, do events with my sorority, relax, catch up on work, and watch Netflix.

My favorite class and why: "Development of School-Age Children," because I want to pursue a career involving children so it was incredible to learn how children develop physically, cognitively, and emotionally. I have a passion for children so it was exciting to get the opportunity to get a little insight into their behaviors.

I am involved in: In addition to being a Spartan Guide, I am a part of Greek Life.

My favorite food on campus: East Coast Wings

Favorite things to do in Greensboro: I love to go to Friendly Pets and play with the puppies; I also enjoy going downtown to all the neat shops, and shopping at the mall, of course.

If I could have any superpower it would be: To fly

My best advice for prospective students: Follow your heart when pursuing a major. Take everything day by day and try new things. I believe that everyone should come to college with an open mind because there are so many things to experience and learn. And last, my biggest piece of advice is to find your home-away-from-home.
