Future career aspirations: The knowledge I have gained about counseling has inspired me to work in the Washoe County School District to create programs that help educate parents and students early on about the benefits of counseling. I can see myself creating focus groups with just Hispanic parents to ensure they are informed about the different ways counseling can be helpful when in need of assistance. Once I have spread awareness within the school district, I hope to become a clinical social worker to ensure this field can expand with the number of social workers who speak Spanish. This ensures that these individuals can use this resource confidently. Therefore, helping students and parents understand early on what counseling is can help break the stigma the Hispanic culture holds towards this resource.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: Expand my food palate, create lifelong connections, and be open minded about new experiences
