Throughout my undergraduate and graduate studies at Minnesota State University Moorhead, I have reflected upon many obstacles and successes that have brought me to this moment in time. I strongly believe being transparent through the self-reflection process is crucial to understanding our own motivation and commitment towards helping others. I have examined significant relationships and events in my life, as well as interviewed individuals who have observed my personal and professional growth. Through this analysis of self, I discovered more of myself and the purpose behind my motivation to be a school counselor.
