Throughout the semester I was given the opportunity to gather information from self-assessment exercises, Strength Finders and the Type Focus assignment to inform myself on different strengths and career goals that I have.

During my Undergrad program at Auburn University, my goal is to decide whether I would prefer working with children or adults and what setting I enjoy most.
