In addition to lacrosse, Hannah was a member of the Swim Team for a year and worked with Public Safety. In this role, Hannah helped with the #stayhealthy social media campaign during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the contact-tracing hotline. She wanted to get involved in the administrative side and started attending meetings with the Health and Safety Task Force.
“I’m learning a lot about how higher education works,” Hannah says. Off campus, she’s helping with the political campaign of Tracy Furman who is running for Greensboro City Council at Large.
For the past two semesters, Hannah has also served as a teaching assistant for a 100-level Introduction to Public Health course and a 300-level global health class. Both were taught by Aleks Babic, a Guilford graduate who has been a close mentor for Hannah during her college years.
“I think everyone was dealing with COVID in different ways and was struggling in their own way. It was really awesome to have a great educational mentor but also someone I felt like was really there for all students,” she explains.
Drawing from her rich experiences at Guilford and beyond, Hannah has advice for other students: “Be loud about your authenticity. That’s something you should be proud of. I think I could have been farther than where I am now if I didn’t always try to compare myself to others. It’s great to be yourself.”
