“I want to thank the counselors who continue to encourage me to this day: Kehau Newhouse and Jodie Kaderli, your belief in me was a great source of motivation. I also want to give a special thanks to Dr. Ruben Campos who gave me the skills to look beyond what’s directly in front of me and Dr. Melissa Kirkendall who taught me when I was fresh out of high school through the 8 years of my higher ed journey.”
