It is a privilege to be a part of student’s journeys. I love accompanying UW Bothell students on their path to realize their right to education and their academic and career goals.

What is the best advice you can give a new student?
Follow your heart. Do not let anyone tell you no. You can realize your dreams and more. You have much more strength and potential than you even know! If you work hard, are pro-active, and capitalize on your strengths, there is no stopping you. Seek out help – talk to people! I strongly encourage students to complete informational interviews and actively seek out information, contacts and connections. The vast amount of knowledge and ideas in the world is so exciting – you just have to tap into it! Never underestimate the power and beauty of your dreams and your potential. Never let anyone define your life but you. You have the power over your future, and no one can put you down but yourself. You possess the most important factor in your life: your attitude.
