I thought I would never continue my education, but then I enrolled at SMC. After the first year I was involved in clubs, extracurriculars, and committee's on campus. I have always been Proud to be SMC

Being a President's Ambassador was an experience that helped me to enhance my networking skills, public speaking skills, and opened up doors for me within the college and out of it.

Thank you to my mother for being there; Professor Dickinson for helping me to realize my own strength; Professor Driscoll for believing in me. Even if life seems rough, be tough, & go to office hours.
