Blog Post #1
My name is Audrey Hope Carrio. I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama and my parents still live in the same house I grew up in actually. I am a 5th year senior at South Alabama. I started my college career at the University of Montevallo in Northern Alabama, where I played tennis and was a tour guide for the school. I moved back to home after my freshman year and transferred to Faulkner State Community College where I also played on the tennis team. After my sophomore year I transferred to South and have been here ever since. As you may have noticed by now I really enjoy playing tennis, it is one of my favorite hobbies even though I don’t get to play as much as I would like to. I work at a resale boutique called Rave Reviews, I have only been there a short while but I love my job! In the future I hope to actually open up a boutique of my own, once I retire from teaching.
Why did I choose education? As I said earlier, I am a 5th year senior so I have been in college for quite some time now. I have never been one of those people who just absolutely knew what they were going to do. I am quite the opposite actually; I have never had any clue what I wanted to do. Originally, I thought I wanted to be a nurse so I applied and got into USA’s nursing program. I quickly figured out that nursing was not for me, I have a weak stomach and could not handle the gore that came with being an RN. After nursing school I really had no idea what to do. Only recently did I decide to switch to education. I love science and I have been a student for the majority of my life so education just seemed like a natural fit. The benefits and ideal schedule are a plus as well. I am going for secondary science and hope to teach biology to juniors and seniors. Being a college tennis player I also feel like I would be a great person to coach the tennis teams in the spring. I am very excited about my new education path and could not be more excited to get the semester started!
