Sheccid Rosales - Psychology and Social Work - Fall 2021 Senior Spotlight

Dec 06, 2021

Sheccid Rosales 
Major: Psychology and Social Work  

Campus Activities and Achievements: Sigma Theta Epsilon Sweetheart, Ronald E McNair Scholars Program, Worden Social Work Organization, Mexican American Student Association, Psi Chi Honor Society, Order of Omega Greek Honor Society, Resident Assistant Work Study, Chapel Choir, National Society of Leadership and Success, and Dean Merit Recipient.  
Impact of OLLU: OLLU has helped shaped me into the person I am today. I have been able to build lifelong friendships, with friends who I consider my home away from home. I was able to grow in academia through the constant support of my professors, faculty mentors, advisers, and so many more people who just want to see me succeed.  
An important life lesson: When times get dark, look for the stars. Despite all the hardships and challenges, there is always something to look forward to and will be worth it in the end. Life comes with so many unexpected events and we must push through them to be able to see the bigger picture, even though they may seem small at times.  
Plans for the future: Through my social work field placement at La Posada, I have discovered my passion for working with the immigrant population. As a first-generation student and Mexican American, I have seen the sacrifices and hardships from my parents and what it took for them to start a life in the United States. I would like to help the immigrant population find their voice and advocate for them in whatever way I can. I plan on moving back home and work with a nonprofit organization to help immigrants, and plan on starting grad school in the fall. I hope to obtain my master's in social work and possibly strive for a PhD.
