Q: What did you find most beneficial about the SALT Center?
A: The sense of community and the support I received during my first two years of college. Personally, I was not prepared for college, and therefore, I had a difficult transition my first year. Throughout my first two years of college, a critical time of self-discovery, the SALT Center provided the necessary tools to guide me in the right direction and the resources to help me excel.
Q: What life lessons have you learned from your time at the SALT Center and as a professional?
A: My field is extremely callous, competitive and fast moving; you only have one shot. Professionals in the real world are going to have expectations of you. From my experience in the workforce, you cannot and should not use your learning disability as an excuse for mistakes. The SALT Center taught me how to be a self-advocate which gave me the confidence to overcome any obstacle. My time at the SALT Center.
