What I'm passionate about and why

I’m passionate about making sure others feel like they have a friend when they need one the most. College can be scary, so feeling like you’re alone can make it even scarier. I’ve been there, and I want to make sure others know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and I want to help you get there.

What I like most about Western

Western not only has a beautiful campus, but it also has a great community full of amazing students and teachers. No matter what corner you turn, you’ll run into somebody willing to lend a helping hand or ready to have a great conversation.

What I ultimately hope my education helps me achieve

I hope that my education at Western will prepare me to become a counselor and help as many people as possible. Helping others is important to me, as I have had some really difficult lows in my life, and I want to make sure I can help others through theirs.
