Q: What excites you most about the future?
Something that excites me the most about the future is being able to become a child youth worker and being able to work with kids. Being able to help younger kids and teens with life is something I have always wanted to do. Once I am able to work, I want to work at a community center or an organization like the Boys & Girls Club to help kids with social and mental issues they are going through.
Q: What’s your favorite quote or saying? (something you live by, inspirational, leadership)
My favorite quote is “Fairy godmother use gentle words until gentle words no longer work” from the book ‘Break Your Glass Slippers’ by Amanda Lovelace. The is my favorite quote because I always try to use soft-spoken words before an argument can become too loud or a screaming match. By using gentle words, it keeps me calm and I know I’m not in the wrong if they yell at me.
