Welcome! I see you go to Winthrop, awesome. I live in Darlington, SC
(work in Florence). I am an Ambassador, and the Ambassador project is
awesome. It's a good starting point, however you may want to get
involved in some other area first, to get to know some folks and just
kinda see how Fedora works. One thing you could do, is log into
#fedora-ambassadors on IRC (freenode) and say hi to everyone (I'm
jaysonr on freenode). Once you are sure you want to be an ambassador,
you can follow this process:
Another possibility is getting involved in some SIG's (Special
Interest Groups) that center around things you are interested in from
Fedora yourself (for example, I'm a member of the KDE, Ruby and Xfce

You will also want to go ahead and start creating a Wiki page (part of
becoming an Ambassador anyway), here is mine

others as well.
All of my contact info is on my Wiki page, as well as this e-mail
address I'm sending from, so feel free to contact me anytime if you'd
like some guidance.
Above all, welcome to the Fedora community!
