Extracurricular Activities:

When I'm not busy with school or work I love to read, watch Kentucky basketball, attend church, and love to volunteer any extra time to the Barbourville nursing home. I have always been taught that you always need to give back.

What has been the biggest benefit of participating in the program for you?

The biggest benefit of participating in the program is all the people I have met. I had the greatest mentor at my place of work, and she taught me a lot of things I'll always cherish.

What is your favorite part of the program? 

My favorite part of the program is actually where I work. I work at the nursing home in town. The people there are just awesome. It's such a privilege to get to work with everyone there.

Would you recommend this program to others? Why or Why not? I would most definitely recommend this program. It allows you to get an insight of future jobs. It’s a great learning experience. It has taught me about giving back. Words can't explain how much I love my job, and how grateful I am that I got to be a part of this program.

Future Goals: 

My future goals consist of getting a bachelor’s degree in Human services, being successful in a job I love, and being in a stable point of my life, so I will be able to give back to my community.
