Meet our 2016-2017 Freshmen Class
Name: Sabrina Savoie
What made you decide to come to UT?
Growing up in Austin, I fell in love with the city, so when I started touring other schools I found myself comparing them all to Austin. Ultimately, I just couldn’t bear to leave.
What was your favorite event in high school and what are you looking forward to in college speech?
Omg, I LOVE Oratory! I think Oratory is unique in the platform it creates to inform others about the issues you are passionate about and become an advocate for change. Plus, I am a sucker for a good solutions acronym. The thing that I am most looking forward to in speech this year is learning. I am beyond excited to see amazing performances and soak up all I can from the amazingly talented individuals that I am privileged to compete with on this team!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
My ultimate dream would be to go back in time to colonial America circa 1763. After watching the animated PBS series Liberty’s Kids, seven year old me became so obsessed with the American Revolution that I forced my parents to let me watch the entire John Adams HBO series and subsequently take our summer vacation visiting the homes of the first five presidents. Today, I have developed a theory that I was a founding father in a previous life.
Which celebrity/politician would you like to trade places with for 24 hours?
The things I would do to become Leslie Knope

I have been on the hunt for a hunter green suit for about three years now, so if you find one, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
