English major, Renaissance minor
(Youth development at North Community YMCA; Office associate at Minn/CAN)
"I realized I wanted to work with youth/education after working for some time in the construction field as a human rights officer. After some introspection, I felt pulled toward helping ensure that young people receive quality education. My education prepared me for my career by showing me the importance of critical thinking. It was my critical thinking that helped me find new ways to make positive change in the world. I am able to maneuver through obstacles and keep my cool at work because of the critical thinking skills that were developed at St. Thomas."
