Andie Scharer – Born and raised in Texas, Andie still considers herself to be a proud resident who claims no allegiance to the stereotype of the typical Texan. Most people find this very surprising considering Andie grew up in a small town 40 miles from Houston. Her parents are school teachers, so the value of an education was ingrained in her at a very early age. Andie was a successful student throughout grade school, never missing one day in 13 years and participating in many extracurricular activities in sports as well as academics. When college came around, her dream was to attend the University of Michigan and she was accepted. However, Andie also received a large scholarship, which stipulated that she attend a university in the state of Texas. At this point, she had no choice. So, she attended the only Texas college she applied for — the University of Texas at Austin. She knew nothing of the rivalries, the history, or the academics of UT. However, once she arrived and every minute thereafter until she graduated, was the most enlightening time of her life thus far. Andie learned how to bounce back from a failing GPA after a rowing injury put her on bed rest during her freshman year, she navigated the streets of Florence, Italy for her entire junior year, and she found herself through a diverse universe of experiences. Currently, Andie is out in the workforce, struggling to stay afloat, but gaining strength and still discovering ways to stay happy and feel alive!
