While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were

My mom, my dad, my family, my friends, my advisors, and the professors of the Communication Department. Dr. Veronica Hefner, David Benin, Samantha Joyce, Aaron Sachowitz, Scott Schonfeldt-Aultman, Dan Leopard, Makiko Imamura, and many more. As a transfer student, I didn't know what to expect but all of these professors and many others made it feel like home. Thank you all for helping me through.

My favorite SMC memory is

There's so many moments I could mention. But given the opportunity to study aboard in Italy is the memory that sticks out the most. Interning at a second chance school and helping those in need is an irreplaceable experience.

I'm looking forward to most

As students who are apart of class of 2020, with Covid-19 affecting us we are are going into the toughest job market. But with my experience and the tools that SMC has given me throughout my time there. I am confident that I will have great opportunities ahead of me.
I have one superpower, I never give up.
