How has CSI³ helped you?
It has given me hope and provided me with the opportunity to work with awesome advisors who have encouraged me every single day. Everyone has pushed me and kept me motivated to reach my goal of earning my Bachelors in Science.

What keeps you motivated and positive throughout life’s hardships?
I try to focus on the positive thoughts only. I try to see the light at the end of the tunnel, focusing on the bright times and not the dark times. I also like to see what I will gain as a reward, even if I am making sacrifices right now. I like to thrive off of the happy moments and do not allow sadness to take over.

What advice would you like to give to your fellow scholars?
Don’t work alone and most definitely do not be afraid to ask for help. Foster a relationship with your advisor and be actively aware of how your progress is going.

What are your plans after graduation?
To pursue a Credentials and Masters program.
