Hi! My name is Bethany and am 22 years old. Born in Tallahassee,but raised in Sweden. I live in Suwanee as of 2011 and will be attending the Gainesville campus. I am a transfer student; I attended Georgia State for over 4 years working on my core for their accelerated BSN program while working a lot. I have completed their core, but have a couple core to take at UNG.
Hobbies and interests include video-editing, music-making (I sing and play piano... And TRY to play guitar with my little hands that don't quite do the trick, lol), traveling, learning languages, trying exotic food, and other things that I will have to put on hold while in the nursing program, but that is completely fine with me!!!
Two of my other great interests are helping people and learning how things WORK, especially the body! It's very fascinating!
UNG is the only school I applied to as I want to keep living up here if possible (It's so pretty up here -- reminds me of Scandinavia!), but received a letter in March stating that I was placed on the wait list. I knew there was possibly a teeny tiny chance I'd get lucky, and I really hoped I would, but after receiving the letter I tried to come up with other plans... More difficult and tedious plans... Very uncertain plans too... I kept telling myself that if I got into UNG it'd be a miracle and the best possible thing that could happen. It would solve all of my problems and put a halt to my uncertain plans and allow me to see the light at the end of the tunnel after attending school for close to 5 years. I kept checking my mail and phone in hopes of receiving good news, and then finally a week or so ago, I saw a missed call from Dahlonega while I was at work and immediately called the number back using the work phone... And the rest is history. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been given this opportunity, and I can't wait to meet you all!
