My experience in the Work Program at Paul Quinn College transformed me into a well-rounded leader by exposing me to a business casual dress code and a diverse student body. As an on-campus worker assigned to the WE Over Me Farm, I quickly climbed the ladder to become a student supervisor and training facilitator of community volunteer groups. Through this experience I developed crucial public speaking, teamwork/ collaboration, and management skills. Additionally, I had the opportunity to raise awareness about Food Deserts in Dallas by being interviewed by and featured on local news stations.
After proving myself on-campus, I was selected to participate in the Corporate Work Program. My internship with the City of Dallas Sanitation Services - Zero Waste recycling initiative lead to a full-time job offer as an Office Assistant after graduating from Paul Quinn in 2017. Now, I have been promoted to Coordinator in my company.”
