UIC Life

Local or Commuter?

Commuter

What are you involved with on campus?

Her Campus Editorial Team, PSI CHI tutor, Conversation Partner Program Participant, ASB-Alternative Spring Break Participant

What are your plans for next year?  

I hope to graduate a year early in the Spring of 2018. In my last year, I hope to become an active member in the ASB organization, continue tutoring for PSI CHI, obtain a grant to conduct an architecture based-research project in Europe, get an internship working with children, spend my breaks volunteering in other states through ASB, spend more time with my family, work and graduate with the highest academic standing possible.

What are your plans after graduation?

In the future, I’d like to become a practicing social worker active in the immigrant community and amongst youth, and possibly, in the distant (distant distant) future, become a Human Rights Lawyer. Above being a social worker, I also want to be an active participant in my community (possibly teaching Spanish classes, learning a 4th language, working as an interpreter, etc.) and remain a strong advocate for social justice and social empowerment. After graduation, my immediate plans may entail taking a gap to teach English abroad.
