Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
In my current role at UC San Diego, I supervise 15 undergraduate employees, which has become the highlight of my position. I have built one on one relationships with each of my students as they continue to discover their own paths while balancing work and school. I see myself in many of my students and each day I am confident that this is the field for me. Their journeys and stories have confirmed my desire and passion for education. Student Affairs has showed me the possibilities of being a part of something bigger than myself and a community that can make a lasting impact on a student. Soccer will always have a special place in my heart, but it is through losing something I loved that I am able to now pursue a career I love just as much. It would be a great honor to be awarded the Mometrix Graduate Scholarship in order to continue my academics. Thank you for your time and consideration.
