1. What is unique about your major?
Social work is a fantastic major because once you graduate, it is immediately a career. Social workers can do anything from work in legislation changing social policies to protecting children and senior citizens from maltreatment. It is a career that is emotionally stressful but the benefits are endless and it provides you with the opportunity to impact individual lives on a daily basis.
2. What's your favorite thing about Daemen?
The quality that drew me to Daemen and has kept me here my entire undergraduate career is the personable atmosphere and willingness of professors and staff to help you in any way possible, get to know you, and aid your development and success as a college student.
3. Where do you see yourself after Daemen?
After Daemen, I see myself in graduate school obtaining a Master's degree in Social Work because our professors constantly motivate us to further our education so that we can be the most knowledgeable young professionals in the field.
4. Countries I have visited:
I have been to the Bahamas, Spain, and Italy. I'm also planning to go on Daemen's annual service trip to the Dominican Republic in January 2014.
