How has being in SSS been helpful to you in college?
SSS has been helpful to me in college by guiding me in the right direction and providing me with resources I didn't know I had. It has also been helpful by teaching me leadership and time management skills.
What are your career goals and/or dream job?
My career goal is to be an advocate to children who don't have their own voice. My dream job would be to open my own non-profit organization to help homeless children.
Any advice for first-year students?
My advice for first-year students would be to get involved and try new things because you never know if you might really like something if you've never tried it.
