How I Live Greater:
My role as a student organizer for POWER University Collegiate Caucus has taught me the skills to integrate myself into the local community. Through training in community organizing techniques, I stand with our local community members to help them achieve the social change they wish to see!
Why I Chose SJU:
A former graduate from the Class of ’15 did her year of service at my high school back home. I knew I wanted to surround myself with others as authentic as her, and I checked out the school that shaped her into the person she is today. Once I set foot on campus and met the students here, I knew I would find that same type of authenticity here and never looked back.
Biggest Piece of Advice:
It’s okay to make mistakes! There are plenty of moments in my first year where I thought I had failed. It’s expected that you will not be perfect, so feel free to do something out of your comfort zone
