I wanted to be a PLUS Team Student Coordinator for a while and when I finally got the position, I was absolutely over the moon. It was and will be one of the greatest things that I have gotten to be apart of at WOU. PLUS Team was the first team that I was ever a part of and it seriously changed my life. The people, the growth, and the memories will always stay with me.
What will you miss most about college?
I will greatly miss all of the amazing people at Western. This community has played an influential and irreplaceable role in my life. I can’t even think about not getting to see them every day or even living a whole state away!
What are your plans for after graduation?
I will be a kindergarten teacher for Federal Way Public Schools District in Federal Way, Washington!
What advice do you have for current and future Wolves?
GET INVOLVED! Seriously! Step out of your comfort zone, surround yourself with people who will lift you up and love you for YOU, and stay true to yourself.
What do you know now that you wish you knew your first term in college?
That life will move on. Oh you accidentally slept through your alarm and missed class? It happened and life will go on. You thought you were going to get an A on that test and then you did way worse than expected. You will recover from it. Don’t let it all overwhelm you. Find a balance and enjoy college while it lasts.
What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
The eggshell chairs in RWEC! They are just so fun and relaxing to swing in!
What’s the most important lesson you learned about yourself while in college?
That it is really difficult for me to say “no” and that I would often overwhelm myself with multiple jobs and extracurriculars! Which looking back on it now, was too much, but it was all worth it. I did learn that it is totally okay to say no and put yourself first! Your mental, physical, and emotional health should be your first priority! It matters!
