From her humble beginnings in Okmulgee to her graduation from the University of Oklahoma with degrees in Sociology and African American Studies, Georgina's vibrant personality and social charm shine through. She also has a Master’s degree from OU in Human Relations. A true powerhouse, she's not only a dedicated member of Sigma Gamma Rho, but also a campus advisor, juggling multiple roles with her unstoppable work ethic. Tune in as she takes us through her diverse work experiences, from the Oklahoma Juvenile Detention Center to becoming a juvenile probation officer for the state, and even her work at the Ice Events Center and Grill, where she started as cashier and then became a bartender. However, the story takes an exciting turn when Georgina stepped into the world of comedy in 2017. A natural funny bone, she had been making people laugh for years before officially hitting the stage at open mics at Ice.

She discusses being nervous, early struggles and how she gained her confidence.
