2. Take some friends to Centennial Park

I’ve always supported being multifaceted. We should constantly be learning and growing in and out of our chosen fields–especially while in college when we can experiment in various areas while pushing forward to our individual goals.

I’ve had my heart set on being a filmmaker from a very young age, and Georgia State had ...
