Jonathan Harding My Why

Communication

I competed in Distinguished Young Women and represented the state of Missouri, and while I was down here in Mobile, Alabama, I visited University of Mobile. I loved how nice everyone was and it stuck with me. I am going into Broadcast Journalism. I have always enjoyed writing and speaking in front of a camera. The professors here are incredible, and they help even by having one-on-one meetings with me to make sure I do well. One thing that has been important to me through my first year is how well I adjusted to life at UM. I have found a family that has made living 12 hours away from real family a lot easier. I am excited to be a Ram Rush leader this fall because Ram Rush is what got me so involved when I did it as a freshman, and I want to help other new students get plugged in to our Ram family as well as I did.
