What I wish I had known when I was in college: I wish I would have known to utilize helpful campus resources such as tutoring, the writing center, academic advising and other student support offices. Transitioning from high school to college was a challenge and doing it on my own was difficult at times. Looking back, I also wish I would have been more involved on campus. Getting connected to campus resources and activities starts on day one. I highly encourage students to become involved in activities.

What does being first-generation mean to me: Being first generation means that I am the first person in my family to go to college. To me, this was really exciting, although challenging at times. One of the benefits of receiving a college education is that I am in a career that I am passionate about and I go to work knowing that I am doing something I enjoy. I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to go to college.

Top goals for the year: Get on a regular exercise schedule, plan a trip to Hawaii, and continue learning and developing my skills as a Student Affairs professional so that I can best serve those I work with.
