Resident Advisor at YESS- I work with youth at risk. I help make their living ability stable, and hope they get into another healthy home during their time at the agency.


The greatest accomplishment was not having any experience with youth at risk to having gained so much experience. I have built relationships with the children and staff there that will always be remarkable. I have helped better youths' lives.

What advice would you give?

My advise for future students is that everyday is a new day, have a positive mind. When you are aren't sure of things ask questions, it will help your learning and understanding, don't be afraid!
