AlainaAlaina B.

Major: Business Administration (Human Resources concentration) with a photography minor

Anticipated graduation: 2020

Hometown: Winston-Salem, N.C.
Motto: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Goals: I would like to work at a large corporation as the head of the human resource department. Another passion of mine is photography, so I would like to start a photography business on the side. The most important thing to me is becoming successful in doing something I love. 

Why I chose UNCG: It felt like home the moment I stepped on campus. Some of the other schools where I toured felt like buildings, but here at UNCG, we have a community. 

Best UNCG moment (so far): Making muffins with my new best friends. We talked, listened to music, and enjoyed the fruit of our labor! It is something I will never forget. 

Biggest UNCG surprise (so far): How much I have learned from all the different cultures here! Choosing UNCG has been one of the greatest and most rewarding choices I have made.

Favorite place on campus: My favorite place on campus by far is the library, because it's a great place to focus on work. I also love the wellness center — there are so many great programs to participate in!

On weekends: I relax, work out, and do homework.

Favorite class: "Introduction to Biological Anthropology" (ATY 253) with Dr. Stuart and Dr. Egeland because I find it extremely interesting to learn about the human body, not to mention that the course is taught extremely well!

Student involvement: Residential adviser in Spring Garden Apartments [residence hall], member of the rock climbing club, and intramural volleyball.

Favorite campus eats: Salsarita's 

Favorite Greensboro activity: Going downtown and experiencing the atmosphere and the wonderful people of Greensboro.

If I could have a superpower, it would be: To fly.

My advice for future Spartans: It is so important to stay true to who you are and to be yourself. At UNCG, you will be accepted for what you believe — just be wonderful you.
