Building Strong Careers

“My overall goal is to be a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and to continue working as a Mental Health Therapist. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults with mental health and behavioral problems. Although sometimes this work can be tough, I continue to do it because I believe that they can change and become the person that they can be. Receiving this scholarship has helped me accomplish my goals but also helps me to have an impact on my clients and the community.”
