Hi, everyone! My name is Erin Mills, and I am a USC Dornsife sophomore majoring in Applied Math and minoring in Spanish. Coming to USC last year was a huge change from my hometown, Jefferson City, Missouri. However, the change could not have been better for me. In just one year here I have been able to become involved in a wide array of activities ranging from a professional leadership fraternity to data science research. Opportunities such as these have allowed me to explore my interests and become more self-aware at the same time.
I feel so lucky to be able to go to a school with so many opportunities both in and out of the classroom and share them with you. I even studied abroad in Madrid through the Spanish department this summer! Dornsife has provided me the opportunity to work hard but also to enjoy the work I do. I am looking forward to seeing more of the world and hope to spend a semester at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Traveling is one of my greatest interests, and I aim to incorporate it in both my personal and professional life.
My USC experience has just begun, and I am excited to see what the future brings. From what I can imagine, each year will just provide more opportunity than the next.
