Why social work?
Social Work is embedded in my DNA. I thoroughly enjoy uplifting, guiding, counseling, and working with people. Enrolling in this Master’s program has made me realize that many of the trials that I have experienced in life were preparing me for social work. Besides when I am with my family at home, being in the classroom is the only time that I feel as if I 100% belong where I am.
