Senior Snapshot: Brittney Walker
⭐ Brittney Walker ‘22 ⭐
Accounting | English Minor
"Like most freshmen, I didn’t know what I wanted or how to get there. It took trying a bunch of organizations until I found what was right for me. Getting involved allowed me to not only meet my best friends but also built inner confidence. Over these past four years I’ve been converted from an introvert to an extrovert!
I’m most proud of how I’ve grown into my own during my time at UNH. I expanded as an individual not only within Paul but also through my English minor in COLA. I’ve always loved writing – through it I feel I can express who I am and embrace my creativity.
Rines was definitely the most influential experience I’ve had. Whether it was entrepreneurs coming in and pitching to us, or going through the due-diligence process, it's been a learning curve that's been nothing but beneficial. I’m the only accounting major in the fund. I've learned something new every single day.
Paul's Career and Professional Success office helped me from day one. When I chose accounting as a sophomore (thanks to the passion and dedication of Professor Berube!), they immediately connected me with alumni who worked in the field. I interviewed for, and landed, an internship with Ernst & Young for the summer between my junior and senior year. It was such a great experience - and they offered me a job! So I've spent my entire senior year knowing exactly where I'm headed. It's been great.
I have countless memories... but one that sticks out is FIRE. I made some of my best friends through the program. And my peer advisor became a mentor to me throughout the past four years – I can't imagine my experience without her.
Paul College is like a second home to me. This school gave me not only my best friends but the confidence to be who I truly am. I’m going to miss going to the great hall and seeing my friends studying and hanging out. It's easily my favorite place on campus.
My four years at UNH have been the time of my life. Despite the stress and hard work, the people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had made it all worth it."
