“When I applied for this job, I wanted to be a role model for young people who needed guidance to live a better life. But had no idea how much satisfaction I would get in return. When I hear from a student that I counseled years before and they are happy and successful, I know that I played a small part in changing a life. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
