Aimee Lauren Andrews

Bachelor's in Family Life: Family Studies Emphasis

What is your favorite thing about BYU?

My favorite thing about BYU is the connections that I made with my peers and professors. I was constantly surrounded by such inspiring people that helped me to learn and grow as a student and as a person in general. The professors that I encountered cared about me and my success, and that made my BYU experience such an impactful and amazing one. I cannot thank my professors enough for all that I have learned from them.

What was the best learning experience you had?

The best learning experience that I had was the opportunity to go on a Study Abroad. I learned so much academically, but at the same time was able to learn about the world and the different cultures that are out there. Through this study abroad, I was able to gain a better understanding of the world. Because of this understanding, I learned about who I am and what changes I want to make in order to make a mark on this world.

What/Who are you grateful for as you reflect on your college experience?

I am so grateful for the support from my family throughout my college experience. Growing up, my parents always taught me about the importance of education. Their support has been imperative for my success at BYU. I am also so grateful for the connections that I made with other BYU students and professors.

Activities

I attended the Winter 2020 London Centre Study Abroad and had so many amazing experiences from that. I was also a member of the School of Family Life Student Association (SFLSA), as well as the BYU User Experience and Design Association.

What's next for you?

I would like to work for a year in order to gain more professional experience, and then apply to Graduate school. I would like to receive a Masters Degree in Social Work in order to pursue my dreams of becoming an Addiction Therapist.
