Artifact #2

My second artifact is my Macbook. Besides being an integral part of my academic work and communication with friends and family, my laptop acts as a catalyst for creativity. From poetry to photoshop to writing, programs accessible from my laptop have been a huge part of filling my free time with things that both intellectually stimulate me and help to de-stress. Ultimately, my laptop is a place of comfort for me in that regard, as beyond a simple machine, it is an outlet for my favorite activities.

Artifacts

An artifact with meaning to me are my heels. In high school, a significant part of my identity came from my role as a competitive debater on my school’s Speech and Debate team. There, in an effort to practice professionalism, we were required to dress in business formal attire to every competition. For me, this meant I spent every Friday and Saturday in heels, no matter the weather or the distance we had to walk from our bus to the venue.

Now, I find myself a first-year business major with a specialization in Finance. Here at Fisher, it is more than frequent that my heels are reincorporated into my life, from interviews to professional events to job fairs. As someone seeking a career in business, I anticipate my heels following me through my career path, symbolizing my hard work and commitment to professionalism.  

 

About Me

Hey! I’m Hannah McCollough, a first year at The Ohio State University. Currently, I plan on double majoring in Finance and Public Affairs, and am apart of the Mount Leadership Scholars program. I’ve always been drawn to things involving people; from my passion for social studies classes throughout elementary school to politics and current events today. My interest for such affairs were cemented in high school after joining and committing to my school’s Speech and Debate team, where I debated topics of national importance, from gun control to foreign affairs. Ultimately, I found myself most interested in domestic fiscal policy, and thus chose to study at both Fisher and John Glenn here at Ohio State to enrich my curiosity on the public and private sector. Ultimately, my goals here at university are to discover what I want pursue career-wise, but also to grow as a learner. I feel as though my high school experience was more results driven than I would’ve liked, and that college grants the unique opportunity to truly immerse yourself into the specific areas of study that you care about. In my free time, I like playing tennis, running, binging YouTube, and 5pm naps.
