I strive to be as involved in my community as my studies permit. Two years ago, I was selected to attend Pearson College UWC, a school with students from over eighty different countries.

This experience gave me the opportunity to attend presentations conducted by individuals working within the field that discussed the large variety of career paths that a degree in this field has to offer. Being a part of this club has also given me the chance to volunteer with the Radford Police Department, the global non-profit known as Fear 2 Freedom, and with the club’s own organized events throughout the community. Radford University's Master of Social Work program is the place for me due to their focus on community-based family practice.

Throughout my life, I have participated in a lot of activities and have had several different experiences. In the past, I have been involved in several different activities, such as Marching Band.

While my responsibilities as freshmen class vice president were small in the grand sceme, my experience on the student council were perhaps the most enlightening.

For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
