How has the TTS Program helped you? The TTS program helped to make the transition from community college to university an extremely easy one. The program, and Beatriz, has been extremely supportive and responsive to whatever needs and questions I've had. They really make you feel supported and it's been a wonderful journey.
What keeps you motivated and positive throughout life’s hardships? The main thing that keeps me focused is knowing that I have 3 boys that are watching my every move. They are who I do it all for. Also, just knowing that I am going into a field in which I can advocate and make a difference in so many other lives.
What advice would you like to give to your fellow scholars? Days may be hard and life certainly can throw some curveballs but keeping your eyes and mind on the end goal is what it takes to keep pushing. As hard and as scary as it may get, it's all worth it. And if nobody else is proud of you, make sure you stay proud of yourself. We're all rooting for one another.
What are your plans after graduation? I've been admitted into the School Psychology graduate program at Loyola Marymount University so I plan on enjoying the little bit of down time I have before I jump right into my next chapter in the summer.
