In high school, I thought I wanted to become a Child Life specialist. That program was originally how I discovered Wheelock.

But after some self discovery, I decided to go down a different path. I had always loved performing and media throughout my life as well. I didn’t want to get into the show business world, but I knew being a part of a creative setting was something I needed in my life. This was when I found Wheelock’s Communications and Media Literacy major—the description fulfilled everything I knew I wanted. This program combines my love for media and social networking with my drive to help children and families.

Now I have the ability to work for children and families rather than work directly with them. After obtaining degrees in Communications and Performing Arts, my goal is to join a nonprofit organization in order to fundraise money to give back to Child Life programs. I would also like to bring the arts to children and other patients in hospitals.

I truly believe that Wheelock’s supportive community will give me a leg up to achieve my goals.
