I am in my fourth and final year at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. I am majoring in Organizational Communication, and minoring in Psychology. I have taken advantage of as many opportunities as possible while attending college. I have been actively involved in several campus organizations all while persueing leadership roles. In addition, I have also worked during this time so I could pay for school. These experiences have showed me how much I am capable of because of my hardwork and abilities. Specifically, after my participation in different service work, I have learned that I want to help others in whatever I do. My goal is to find a job/career that allows me to help others.
