My name is Hannah Vail and I am from Morristown, New Jersey. I am 19 years old and a sophomore in college at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am currently majoring in political science and media and journalism with a minor in social and economic justice. I plan to attend law school at some point in the future.

In addition to my studies, I often find myself pursuing a multitude of creative activities such as photography and writing. I really enjoy taking professional photos and have learned through various photography courses the dynamics of what creates a good image. I capture a wide variety of images, mainly including very colorful and lively pictures. I took a trip to Italy over the summer of 2016 and got a lot of images from that trip that are very special to me. I always take my camera with me wherever I go so that I can take pictures.

I also spend a lot of my free time writing. I was commended all throughout high school on my exceptional writing, and ultimately ended up entering and winning a couple of local and national writing contests. When it came time to write my essays for college, I was incredibly excited to use my creativity in order to sell myself. Some of my college essays are the best writing I have ever done in my entire life, and they ultimately were the reason why I was accepted to so many of my top schools.
