Transcript of SW 401
I took a project community class where I volunteered in a second grade classroom, which furthered my desire to work with children
I took an intergroup dialogue about gender and really explored a lot of my social identities and reflecting on how I fit into society. I also learned more about the oppression that takes place and became determined to help make a change. Sophomore Year I learned about the CASC minor and decided to take SW 305 to explore the field of social work. I immediately fell in love with what I was learning and felt like it encompassed all that I wanted to do in my life to make a difference in the lives of children. By the end of the year I was a declared CASC minor.
I continued to work on the planning committee of the Detroit Partnership, furthering my leadership and communication skills.
Studied abroad in Florence, Italy
Over the summer I interned at the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Los Angeles, CA where I fell in love with the non-profit world and have thought about a career working at a non-profit. Junior Year I continued to explore my social identities and what it means to be an ally in my intergroup dialogue training course to be a facilitator
Second semester I took on the challenge of facilitating an intergroup dialogue about gender and have learned so much more about myself as well as learned important skills such as active listening, self-reflection, and communication skills.
I interned with the Generation Project, which is a non-profit organization that works with educators across the country to provide low-income schools with new items for their classroom. I was able to combine my love for children with a non-profit and really loved the work I was doing.
I also joined the planning committee of Relay for Life where I help to plan and organize the second largest student attended even on campus.
I am graduating in May as a psychology major and a community action and social work minor Senior Year I have always had a passion for helping others and I plan to have a career where I can do just that. I am from Los Angeles, CA so I plan on moving home and starting my job search. I have yet to have an "ah-ha" moment about my future, so I am going to explore my various options and then decide what my true calling is and whether or not that involves graduate school. No matter what, I want to be making a difference in the lives of others, especially children. What I have Learned My college experience has been a journey of self-discovery and CASC has played a major role in that. Through CASC I met extremely inspiring and empowering individuals who helped me learn a lot about myself. I also took a lot of classes through CASC that challenged me on a regular basis and helped me to find my place in society. I learned so much about privilege and oppression and how my identities came into play. I learned a lot about how to be a good ally and explored the ways in which I can help make a difference in the lives of others. I gained a lot of important knowledge about all of the injustices that happen in our society that I other wise knew little about. My passion for social justice work continued to grow and I know that my future career will encompass all that CASC stands for and believes in.
