Today I am very grateful that I have had the amazing experiences I have with student organizations and the opportunity to be part of a professional committee. I have been President this Fall semester and will continue to be this Spring semester of North Texas Rehabilitation Association. I have had the opportunity to lead a lot of great events and work with an amazing board and membership to advocate for individuals with disabilities. These opportunities have shaped my leadership skills, my public speaking skills, and my event planning skills, three skills that will definitely better me in my future career. I am very thankful for these opportunities, even when they make my life a little more hectic when I have a lot of school obligations.
