If there is anything that college has taught Georgia Southern University junior Kayla Womack, an accounting major and fraud examination minor, it is to remain true to who you are.
“Even through all of my experiences, I have never changed as a person. I have always done what I’ve wanted to do with my hair and I’ve dressed how I want to, and I haven’t let anyone change it,” Womack said.
Because her father is in the military, Womack was born in Germany, but she calls Jesup, Ga., her home. She is fond of GSU not only for the campus, but also the community.
“You feel important and not like a number. The professors are great, and they don’t disregard you. They make you feel like an actual person,” she said.
When Womack is not in class or fulfilling obligations to Delta Sigma Pi and NAACP, she spends time playing softball, watching movies, bowling and hanging out with friends. She also has taken up reading as a hobby.
“Currently, I am reading the second book in the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trilogy. It’s not just about sex; it’s about the development of a relationship and how one can’t live without the other. It has an interesting storyline,” she said.
Womack said the most important advice she can offer fellow GSU students is to know that through it all, staying focused is key.
“I want students to know that they should never lose sight of their goals, because college can give you some experiences that make you lose your focus, but you must maintain it,” she said.
