- What was your major?
My major was Human Development and Family Science and Certificate in Disability Studies from the Institute on Human Development and Disability.
- What are your plans or goals for after graduation?
After graduation, I plan to start OT (Occupational Therapy) school at Augusta University.
- How did the certificate program impact you?
The certificate is the reason I got involved with Destination Dawgs (UGA's inclusive post secondary education program), and I was able to be an intern for 4 semesters then became an intern this past semester. I’m so glad I was able to get involved with the Destination Dawgs program early on, because I was able to get to know the students really well and watch them become more and more independent each semester.
- Why do you think students at UGA should take disability classes through IHDD?
The disability classes create a great foundation for person centered thinking, which is not only useful for working with people with disabilities, but can be applied no matter who you work with in the future.
