Quotable: “My main educational goal is quite simple; help any child I can. As I’ve progressed towards this career path, I’ve sought out more and more opportunities to positively impact the lives of children in my community, and around the state. My motivation in doing so is to provide the type of mentorship and support that I thirsted for as a child.. For every kid that I’m able to develop a working relationship with, I strive to convince them that I am capable of understanding their struggles, I believe in their ability to succeed, and I will continue to support them whenever they may need it.”
