Rose of Tralee

North Carolina Rose: Hannah Virga

Welcome to a glimpse of my hometown! My name is Hannah Virga and I am a 25-year graduate student from North Carolina who could not be more honored to represent the great state of North Carolina! I graduated from East Carolina University in 2015 with a degree in Quantitative Economics and decided to further my education and obtain my Master's in Business and Human Resources from the University of Richmond. If I could be a career student, I most definitely would! I love learning and enjoyed every second of college! I currently work at Capital One Bank as a fraud analyst and love it! I am a coffee connoisseur and would love to open and run my own coffee shop one day. I enjoy spending time exploring my city for local coffee shops and festivals. I spend as much time running as possible and love trying all the new "hip" gyms. My mother was born and raised in Ireland and moved to the United States when she met my father, a true Romeo and Juliet story. I cannot wait to wear my sash in Tralee in just a few more short weeks!
