BluePrint: What made you choose this specific major?

Southwell: I love history. It’s one of the greatest things you could ever learn about, in my opinion. My favorite topic is American History, and I’ve learned a ton from Mr. McMinn.

BluePrint: What do you think will be some of the major differences between college and high school?

Southwell: College is going to be much, much harder- which means I’m going to have to drop my procrastinating ways and really fast. It’ll be time to stop making excuses and actually work.
