I'm an aspiring speech-language pathologist with a passion for working with children. From a young age, I tapped into the role of caretaker; I've been babysitting the kids around my neighborhood since I was 12, and have worked at summer camp as a counselor since age 14. After two years, I realized I wanted to work less as a supervisor to children and more as a knowledgeable guide, so I got my WSI certification and started teaching swim lessons. I was given the opportunity to work alongside kids ages 2-13, and found that getting to work as both a mentor and a teacher was incredibly fulfilling. Now, at college, I do field-work at the local elementary school as a teacher's aide, and spend time doing rehabilitation with patients with special needs in our speech and hearing clinic. When I'm not studying in the library or logging hours in the clinic, I like to spend time reading, meticulously making mix tapes, cheering on the NY Rangers, and racing my dog up hiking trails.
