Why did you decide to participate in the MC program?
I thought it was the most financially responsible choice to pay for tuition.
What has been your biggest challenge as a MC participant and how did you overcome these challenges?
The fact that it is graveyard shift has been a challenge, and I’ve worked with this by taking afternoon and evening classes.
How has working at UPS contributed to your personal and professional growth?
I’ve been approached for a management position so I’m learning and growing every day as well as it’s helped me create my own adult work-school-personal life schedule.
What led you to choose your major of study?
I’m so curious about the brain and the subconscious stuff we process as well as the fact that more of the brain is unknown to scientists.
What motivates and drives you to succeed while pursuing your educational goals?
I’m motivated by the fact that at the end of my degree I will be able to help people with their challenges and that it’s ok to be different. It doesn’t mean that people are broken, they are just unique.
What person(s) has been the biggest influence in your life and why?
My college roommate and my fiancé. My roommate and I bonded over our shared difficulties and goals. We push each other to do our best and work together to keep each other accountable.
