My name is Grace Park and I was born in Chicago, Illinois. I am a second year student at the Univ.of Georgia and am a history and philosophy double major. I recently joined the Georgia Museum of Art Association as I have had an interest in art from an early age. I am a violinist and was part of the UGA Philharmonia during my first year. I have uncertainties about becoming a lawyer, but despite this my aspirations include entering law school. I also have interest in continuing my studies in history after my undergraduate education and teaching in a college environment is another interest.
