Impact of OLLU: OLLU has impacted my life in many ways. I have achieved my life goal and became the first in my family to graduate from college. I have also learned so much and have truly become a better student and had wonderful opportunities that I wouldn't have had otherwise. I was challenged academically, and my professors have truly guided me in many ways. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime. I have also learned the power of helping others and being able to give back to the community in many ways.

An important life lesson: The biggest life lesson that I learned is through community and providence anything is possible!

Plans for the future: With my degree I hope that I can give back to others, the way people have given to me. I also hope that I can help future students in their academic goals. I plan on attending graduate school to continue my education and become a mental health professional.  I want to help others through my education that I have received here at OLLU.
