Q: How has the SALT Center played a role in your success as a professional?
A: The SALT Center services contributed to who I am today because I was able to feel safe and comfortable with myself and consequently, succeed in my classes and ultimately in life. The tutoring services pushed me to learn material in new ways, such as taking notes on my computer, which is something I do to this day. This is an example of how SALT promotes self-advocacy and encourages students to be problem solvers.
Q: What message do you want to share with incoming SALT students?
A: College and life can be challenging at times, but during those challenges focus on the positive. Trust your positive instinct and imagine everyone is cheering you on. At Tantrum Bags, one business slogan is “fearless focus”, which means allowing yourself to reach out for what you want to accomplish, focusing on the end result, and believing your dreams can truly come true.
