My experience at St. Mary’s University has been defined by the Marianist characteristics of service, justice and peace. I am grateful for how the University has served me, how I have served the University and how I will be able to serve the community after graduation. After graduation, I hope to invoke change through journalism and serve others using the experiences I had throughout my time at St. Mary’s. I want to be a journalist so that injustice can be uncovered, the voiceless are heard and change is created in communities everywhere.

Through challenging discourse, meaningful experiences and impactful relationships, my time at St. Mary’s is significant because I learned what it means to serve. My education has been mentally and socially challenging, but I am a more well-rounded, better-prepared individual because of it.
