Why did you choose Addictions Counseling as a major?

I am passionate about helping people who are struggling with drug addiction. Consequently, getting my major as a Substance Abuse Counselor really equipped me to adequately serve and save lives that could have been destroyed by the disease of addiction.

What would your ideal career path look like and what are your plans after graduation?

My ideal job would involve training other Chemical Dependency Counselors in becoming cross-culturally competent. During my senior year at Oak Hills, I've had the privilege to speak at the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health (MARRCH), where I discussed how addiction treatment professionals could better work with Afro-Caribbean immigrants. 

After Graduation, I traveled to Haiti to assess the drug addiction problem, and develop a treatment program that will meet the needs of the people struggling with drugs addiction over there. Currently, I am working towards certification and licensure in my field.
