The relationships and safe spaces I developed with fellow students and professors.
What was the best learning experience you had?
The best learning experience I had was understanding how I could still heal and flourish under distress.
What/Who are you grateful for as you reflect on your college experience?
I am grateful for the Global Women’s Studies program; for Dr. Valerie Hegstrom, Dr. Rebecca de Schweinitz, and Dr. Roni Jo Draper; for USGA; and for the access I had to therapy so that I could successfully finish college.
My experiences interning with Global Women’s Studies and Better Days 2020 greatly enhanced my educational experience. I’m grateful for the research I got to do with Dr. David James Gonzales in the History department! And I’m grateful for my experience both as a member and leader of the Women’s Studies Honor Society. I couldn’t have made it out of college without GWS or my professors.
What's next for you?
Full-time work in the mental health field and eventually an MSW degree!
