Educational Plan "I am graduating in the Spring with my Associates degree in Film & Media Studies. I plan to transfer soon to either Muhlenberg College or Lafayette College where I will finish my Bachelor's degree in the same field of study. I have been on the Dean's List for every semester despite my chronic illnesses, and even undergoing a spine surgery. I am also a member of PTK and Secretary for SGA. I enjoy the study of film but hope to work in the industry some day directing or in some other hands-on creative role."
