Hometown: Carthage, MS
Carly felt pulled to Mississippi State, but not a specific major.
“I looked at interior design, engineering, political science. Nothing felt right.”
Meanwhile, Carly started joining organizations.
“Getting involved forced me to meet people, hear their stories and discover career paths I hadn’t thought of before.”
“Every organization I’ve joined, I had to interview for, so now I have great interview skills. I’ve also learned how to work in a team with all types of people: people who are nothing like me — and exactly like me!”
With time, she found her major, too: Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations and a minor in English.
