“I feel like I was given a second life at Penn State. I was able to be involved in many out-of-class activities, which helped me grow and gain confidence. These activities included working as an orientation leader, student success coach, Lion Ambassador, and editor of the student news, as well as participating in THON. My crowning achievement, however, was building a multimedia news studio on campus and then using it for the student news. In short, I was able to thrive and discover a whole new person at Penn State.”
