Hometown and high school: Fairbanks, Lathrop High School 2004
My Degree: Business Management (BBA), Foreign Languages (BA)
During my path to college I had a hectic time with deadlines and not knowing what to do. At one point I became so overwhelmed because there was so much I didn’t understand. I felt I would never get into college or that I was alone in the process. Fortunately I did overcome this hurdle and enrolled in the University of Alaska Fairbanks. As I look back over those confusing times, I remember the support group I had made up of parents, teachers and guidance counselors; it truly made a difference.
I love being able to inform high school students of their unlimited amount of options. Deciding on postsecondary education deserves time and dedication. I am willing to go above and beyond to make sure these young individuals achieve goals and recognize the fullness of their potential. The most rewarding part of being a guide is hearing a student tell you that you’ve made a difference in their life.
