What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Growing up, I wanted to be a recreational therapist. When I was in college, I spent my summers as a camp counselor and found my love for youth development and mentoring. I had the wonderful opportunity to study abroad in England and had an amazing advisor who helped me tremendously and cared about me as a person. That’s when I knew I wanted to devote my career to helping college students.

Advice to college students:
Life is full of ups and downs – do not forget to love yourself for precisely who you are and who you want become!

What is at the top of your bucket list?
Visiting as many countries as my age.
