I Found My Niche at the University of Michigan

Student Name: Zoe Garden

School: University of Michigan

Major: Communication and Media

“Hi! My name is Zoe Garden, and I am a senior at the University of Michigan, studying Communication and Media with a Political Science minor. Currently, I am studying for the LSAT in October. However, I chose this major because of the different routes I could take because I have so many interests so my plan may be different tomorrow!

In late 2017, I created a pop culture nostalgia blog called @somelikeitpop to express my creativity and my love for everything pop culture. In the past 3 years, it has grown bigger than I could have ever imagined. I have also created YouTube videos (zoe somelikeitpop) on my college experience and getting into UMich as a transfer student. My presence online is all about spreading positivity, staying true to yourself and being unapologetic! Helping others find themselves and grow in their college experience is something I am so passionate about.

Since March, plans have changed and everything around us has been affected. This fall, I have been taking all online classes in my dorm. It sounds cheesy, but I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and since we can’t control what is happening around us, we should make the best of what we can control (while staying as safe as possible)!”—@somelikeitpop
