Position in Library: Library Assistant (Work Study)
Educational Background: I graduated from Berks Catholic High School in
2015. I am currently a sophomore here at Reading Area Community College,
and intend to graduate this upcoming May with an Associate's degree in
psychology. In the future, I am planning on attending Kutztown
University for a Bachelor's degree in psychology. My ultimate dream is
to obtain a Master's Degree in counseling. I would like to work
primarily with adolescents who are affected by eating disorders, such as
anorexia nervosa or bulimia.
Favorite Books: I enjoy reading YA
futuristic novels as well as nonfiction books that challenge my current
way of thinking. My two top book series are the Gone series by Michael
Grant and the Legend series by Marie Lu. My favorite book is The Hobbit
by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Favorite Movies: A few of my favorite movies
in no particular order are: The Fundamentals of Caring (2016), Hector
and the Search for Happiness (2014), Donnie Darko (2001), Finding Nemo
(2003), Zootopia (2016), Spirited Away (2001), and 21 Jump Street (2012).
Favorite Area of Library: My favorite area of the library is the third
floor stacks. I enjoy looking at all of the books we have here,
especially the Philosophy and Cookbook sections.
Special Interests: Ethics (Moral Philosophy), looking up various healthy cooking recipes, Native American heritage, and science
Hobbies: Photography, analyzing movie plots and writing reviews,
listening to classical, Christian, and alternative artists, and going on
walks around my neighborhood
Anything else you wish to share
that will help others get to know you: I enjoy collecting various rocks
and gems and have quite a good collection so far. I am involved in Phi
Theta Kappa and a (soon-to-be) member of Psi Beta. I recently
participated in Writing Wrongs, where I worked with several students to
interview residents of Easy Does It, Inc. (a recovery center for
individuals who are affected by addiction) and publish a magazine. The
goal of this endeavor is to show individuals how addiction has impacted
several lives and to eliminate the stigma attached to alcoholism/drug
addiction. To learn more, check out writingwrongs2016.com. I am also a new member of the Front Street Journal here at Reading Area Community College.
