The biggest thing that I did during my major was working at the University YMCA. That started as being a being a site lead for a mentorship program where we went out to different schools in the community and we taught literacy-based programming. And that opened up a lot more doors. I was able to apply a lot of what I was learning in youth studies to the work that I was doing, and I ended up being able to have a higher role later on.
