During my time at CI I would like to be involved in school by joining extracurricular activities, organizations and clubs. In hopes that I will meet a lot of new people and gain skills that I can’t gain in a classroom setting. Although my main goal is to graduate in four years with my Bachelors of Science Degree. As well as maintaining good grades throughout all four years. I’m unsure of what career I want to pursue so I want to be able to maintain high grades so that I can have more options available to me.
