Paige Bates is a native of Memphis, TN. She attended college at The University of Tennesse, Knoxville where she majored in psychology with a pre-med concentration. During my time there, I studied abroad in London which is one my most favorite life experiences yet, outside of rooting for the Vols on Saturday’s.  After my Impact year, I hope to go on to medical school. 

What do you like to do for fun?

Something I love to do for fun is going to get my nails done. I love to get cool designs or mix and match colors! 

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

Most people probably don’t know I’m allergic to chocolate, but I still take the risk every now and then because who can get through life without eating chocolate?

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

A memorable place that I’ve been is London. I studied abroad and ever since it has has a special place in my heart. There is a lot of history in London and I love that you can take quick trips to other cool places as well, like Paris and Ireland.
