About the artist:

I am committed to everything I do and organization is done very strictly. I plan with regard to the activities assistant role to do extra activities within my activities assistant schedule that I have to perform the activity and do attendance on the lifeloop app assigned by my supervisor. I make sure that every activity that needs to be completed on the schedule is made by my supervisor and extra activities I develop are knowledgeable and fun. My school work is organized strictly also to make sure that I am on task with everything and making sure all my college assignments are passed in on time after work. I usually make a checklist every week during the semesters for due dates and make sure it’s done in advance. My overall average for GPA is 3.40 for my associates degree.

I am determined to increase my GPA during my bachelors and two masters degrees.

I was a guidance aid in the high school guidance department for two and a half years for credits instead of my study periods to do school work. I did all my homework in a timely manner after school. I have had accommodations since high school based on having general anxiety disorder and needing time in a half for quizzes, tests and exams. Also breaks as needed. This has helped to overcome struggles of anxiety in high school and I have seen a LMHC since 2014 to address general anxiety disorder.

My therapist has taught me so much knowledge regarding strategies and techniques to overcome anxiety. She inspires me to go into the profession of counseling as a clinical mental health counselor with art therapy. Art therapy is beneficial to me because I love to do art and photography and that’s included as a phototherapy elective specialization course.
