It is indeed an honor to serve as the Assistant Director of Educational Outreach for the CHANCE Program. In my (over 10 years) of working in higher education, my expertise lies in the field of College Recruitment and Admissions. I find it a very rewarding experience to tell potential students, “Yes, you have been admitted.” As a product of a “non-traditional” College Admissions Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Campus, I firmly believe that numbers and test scores should not be the sole factors in determining accessibility to college for students.
In addition, I believe that everyone should pursue “higher” education because it takes much more than a high school education to remain competitive in this day, age and climate. I am also an Alumnus of the University of Illinois; I hold both a Bachelors and a Masters degree from this fine institution. “Failure is not an option,” and I encourage all students to network with as many people as possible throughout their educational and professional career. I can truly say that each day when I arrive to the CHANCE Office; it brings me joy to be able to help students with their educational plans as they prepare for life beyond college.
