Daja Hansel-Coates

    One word to describe Georgia Southern University rising sophomore Daja Hansel-Coates is “motivated.”
    Coates is a writing and linguistics major from Snellville, Ga.
    Coates says she knew that GSU was the school for her because it was not very expensive and she loved the campus.
    “I wanted to stay in state to save money, and I loved the campus when I visited,” she said. “I was also interested in being able to major in writing, specifically, rather than just doing an English major.”
    Coates says she is looking forward to the many experiences she is destined to have at GSU.
    “I am excited to meet new people. I constantly moved throughout high school, so it will be nice to be settled at a school. I would also love to study abroad, so that should be really fun,” Coates said.
    Coates says her main passion is poetry but she is very interested in writing short stories, plays and maybe even children's books as well.
    Coates says she was involved in an organization last semester but would like to join more next year.
    “I had a MAP sponsor last semester, but I am not in any other organizations. I am, however, interested in finding a poetry club on campus,” she said.
    Coates says she loves being an Eagle because, to her, it means being independent in her decision-making and receiving an education.
