why did you decide to major in communication studies?

I wanted to choose a major that allowed me to have a diverse scope of knowledge and equipped me to adjust and adapt to the ever-changing work force. After graduation, I had a skill set that allowed me to be unique and tackle any challenge in my next phase in life.

who was your favorite professor at widener? why?

Rani Shah was my favorite professor. She was very caring and helped whenever she could. She challenged me in a number of ways to think outside the box, and instilled confidence in me, that I had the necessary tools to be successful at the next level.


My Professional Experience

how has widener prepared you for life after college?

I felt as though there was nothing I couldn't do after going through four years of adversity at Widener. I was well equipped for whatever life challenges I faced, and I had the confidence to be a successful leader.

Challenge yourselves with your classes and professors; soak in as much knowledge as possible. As the world continues to grow and change, it needs leaders in all aspects. As they say, "in life you get out what you put in!"
