I was placed here through a study volunteer program. I basically told them all of my interests, my background and they placed me here. Everyone was really friendly and welcoming when I first arrived.
“I definitely was challenged in BASP as I had no teaching experience and I didn’t really know how to go about coaching these students. I’ve never really thought of myself as being good at explaining things to people, so I’ve definitley grown professionally as I’ve become a lot better at explaining and being interactive with people. SHIMA has greatly helped with my writing skills and making connections."
“My most memorable experience was the BASP graduation. It was the first graduation that they had, the first cohort of students that graduated with their Associates Degree and they are able to now get their Bachelors. It was a really emotional, celebratory experience and everyone was really happy. It was cool to see their accomplishments."
“I have to go home and return to my job, but I forsee myself beginning to apply for law school and pursuing that."
