Future plans: Ever since I did my first internship with Adult Probation, I have wanted to continue in that job. I feel that with Probation I have a great balance between helping others and challenging myself. Since I graduated in December, I am actively looking for positions in the justice and law field to gain experience for my future job endeavors.
“My most memorable moment at WestConn by far would have to be going to the Final Four of the NCAA tournament in Orlando, Florida. It was an amazing feeling to compete against the best of the best in the country and a great way to conclude my final year of competitive soccer. I have been playing the game of soccer since I was 5 years old and all the blood, sweat and tears — and believe me there have been many — along the way all seemed to be worth it. It is going to take a while to completely understand the magnitude of that experience, but for now I am just happy I had the opportunity.”
