My Story

Since high school, I have always been interested in pursuing a career that focused on helping others. Through my studies, I realized my love for psychology and the way it can be used to improve people’s lives. My time as a teaching assistant at the campus preschool gave me the chance to gain firsthand experience working with children. During this time, I realized I was passionate about working with kids. It was amazing to see how each child would grow and develop during their time at our school. In the future I hope to become a social worker that specializes in helping disadvantaged populations in accessing care, specifically children that live in communities that may lack adequate resources. Blue Bird Day will give me to chance to help support the growth and development of kids, and I am extremely excited to start my journey here.
