What is your dream job after college and how do you want to make an impact?
After graduating from college, I want to be a psychologist and work with young people dealing with mental health issues. I want to help them because I am aware that as a society we tend to ignore young people’s problems and dismiss them as less important.
What year are you here at Concordia?
I’m a sophomore, graduating in 2024.
What are you involved in on campus?
I’m involved with Martial Arts Club and Spanish Club.
What is your favorite Cobber tradition and why? What stories do you have to share about that tradition?
My favorite Cobber tradition so far has probably been the beanie toss. I liked the fact that all freshmen gather together and throw their beanies as a sign that their college education has started.
Tell us your favorite stop on tour and why it’s your favorite. Why do you connect with the space?
My favorite spot is definitely the library. I like to show people how big it is and where the study spaces are. I also always mention where my favorite study spot is. I love reading books, so I obviously like being surrounded by books. When I am on tour in the library, I also like to point out the Niblet with his changing costumes.
Words of wisdom for prospective students?
Plan your time well. Try to devote some time daily for your assignments and do not wait until the very last moment to submit them. It will cause you unnecessary stress. Planning will also help you have free time for hanging out with friends, relaxing, and other activities.
Why did you choose Concordia? Was there a defining moment in your college search process?
I chose Concordia because I wanted to find a small liberal art college and Concordia was exactly that. I also liked the psychology program.
