About Me

Who Am I?

Hello! I'm Aysha Jerald. I'm a University of Georgia English/English Education major and New Media Studies certificant. Born and raised in the small town of Sugar Hill, Georgia, I've had my fair share of comfortable places. Consequently, I have a wanderlust spirit, always inclined to take the road less traveled by.

Since my time at the University of Georgia, I have explored several interests. For example, I participate in WIT, or Whatever It Takes, a student-led organization committed to improving Elementary, Middle, and High School lives through mentorship. I am also a participant of the TRIO McNair Scholars research program and the New Media Studies Certificate program, both of which have specifically increased my confidence in pursuing a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and becoming a professor at an R1 University.

As of this year, I have gained two professional titles: Published Researcher in the peer-reviewed American Journal for Undergraduate Research and Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society member! See below for a detailed glimpse of my skillsets and achievements. Also, please don't hesitate to reach out and connect!

During the Summer of 2019, I studied English and Literature abroad in Oxford, England while in the UGA at Oxford Abroad Program. Specifically, I took courses on Medvial Literature and Virginia Woolf.

I earned my High School Diploma at North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, Georgia. I was a dual enrollment honors student with over 500+ hours in community service.
