"A weakness is just a strength that you're not using right." These are the inspirational words Jake Browning, staff writer for The Western Carolinian, lives by.
Jake is from the small town of Mills River, North Carolina. According to him, it wasn't even considered a city until 2009. When asked why he chose to come to Western Carolina University, Jake simply stated that he "really loved the atmosphere" and "just kinda knew" when he first visited that it was where he belonged.
