What is your career or vocation?

Employment Services for youth with disabilities

How has your education impacted your career and your life?

Ive moved cool places, met amazing people, made great friends and have grown tremendously in my profession.

From where you are now, what do you believe about the role of education, especially college?

It would have been alot harder to find a job without a college education....not impossible but definately alot harder. College prepares you for the transition from acidemic life to real life. My teachers gave me a perspective that I didnt have. Also the network of contacts, friends, teachers I had/have to rely on for help/questions/concerns/references/etc is vast.

What advice do you have for the students of Generation TX?

Keep going, dont get discouraged, its hard work but the pay off will be amazing!! Have fun but be smart about it because its a long road and you dont want to make the journey any harder than it needs to be.

Why do you believe in Generation TX?

The youth can make a huge positive difference for all of our futures and thats a big deal

What are your goals as a GenTX supporter?

encourage, support and motivate youth to keep going, work hard and ask for help when you need it. Thats what we are here for
