How are you feeling leading up to graduation?
I am very excited.
What has been your most helpful learning experience while a student at WSU?
I took some very eye-opening classes while at WSU that really influenced my experience here and what career path I plan on following. I would encourage students to take different courses that they may not have planned on, or may not already be fluent in the topic. Those can be the most eye-opening classes.
What has been your biggest challenge as a student and how did you overcome it?
My biggest challenge was procrastination, I learned how to use a planner and use to-do lists daily.
What are your plans now workwise?
I have already started Graduate School at WSU to work on my master's in sociology. I plan on staying at my part-time job and working as a GTA through my master's program.
What advice would you give other WSU students?
Keep your eyes open for opportunities. I lucked into so many things that I never thought that I would be apart of and they shaped my college experience so much.
