Hello, my name is Audrey Sightler!
I am originally from Louisiana, but I currently live in Mississippi. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in International Business Administration as well as a Minor in History with Liberty University.
I have earned multiple certifications in International Business with the University of London; I am also a member of the Royal Economic Society as well as the International Churchill Society. On my mother's paternal side, I am a fourth generation-American from Slavic immigrants. My Great-Grandfather arrived at Ellis Island before the beginning of World War II. His homeland of Yugoslavia eventually became a Federalist Marxist - Leninist one-party socialist republic in 1945; thus, he never returned.
I would say a fun fact about me is that Timothy Matlack, the scriber of the Declaration of Independence, and General Nathaniel Greene are my many times' great uncles. My hobbies include a lot of art, whether it is sketching or photography, I enjoy hiking and riding horses as well. I also enjoy conducting historical research.
I am currently preparing for the 2021 Young Scholars Panel at the 88th Annual Meeting of the Society of Military History, hosted by the Joint Advanced Warfighting School, National Defense University.
