Post-college plans/What do you want to be when you grow up and why?
My current plans are to stay in Springfield and work with some of the many agencies here to build up my resume while I figure out my next steps. Within the next year or so I will likely enroll in a Master’s program for Social Work or Counseling with the eventual goal of being a school counselor or working with at-risk youth and crime victims.
Who is the person that influences you or inspires you the most? Why?
I can’t think of any one specific person, but I would say that I am inspired every day by people who aren’t afraid to put themselves out there and achieve their goals. I think the most valuable trait a person can have is knowing who they are and being true to themselves. I aspire to be more like this and encourage everyone I know to do so.
What has working at Brookens Library taught you?
Working at Brookens has taught me the value of hard work and commitment. During my time at Brookens have put my all into every project assigned to me and, as a result, have gained valuable skills and experiences that will be useful to me in years to come. I have also had the pleasure of getting to know many great people who work hard every day so that the library can function at its best.
