Major: Associate in Arts- Business

Clubs: Student Ambassador, Student Government Association (President), and TRIO Project Aspire

“I love fact that I am the one being able to help students find a place that welcomes them to come as they are. I find a great amount of satisfaction finding a student the help they need and a place to allow them to “kick their shoes off” and feel comfortable enough to be who they are with people that welcomes them! There is a club, program or counselor at Gateway for you- and if there isn’t there are hundreds of people willing to help you find what you need. Just ask! There are many people more than willing to help you find a club/program you’d love to take part in!”

“I wanted to join the clubs here at Gateway to learn more about myself, gain some practical experience in my field of business, and expand my resume, but I have gotten so much more than that. My favorite part of joining these student organizations is the amazing support system and new friendships I have gained.”

Clubs: Student Ambassador, TRIO Project Aspire, and Student Government Association (Secretary)

“My favorite thing about being a part of clubs at Gateway is getting more people excited about going to our school. I believe student engagement is extremely important and if we can get more of the student body involved in things on campus it would be a great step forward. Also being able to represent Gateway is an honor, that I am extremely proud of. Gateway provides great resources for the students that some might not know about, including The Food Pantry, DEI, and TRIO. All of these resources are great and should be utilized by our students.”
