Looking Back and Going Forward

Take Chances

With my current contract ending with the Mohawk Students’ Association it made me take a look at the past couple years. I have worked for the MSA for 3 years but it seems so much less. I love working for such a great organization that it doesn’t feel like work when I am here. I started out as a bartender/serving in the Arnie, I then applied for Director of Special Events on the MSA Board for which I got hired and once that contract was done I was given the opportunity to work for the MSA again as a Student Services Assistant at the IAHS campus.

Through these activities and groups I met the most incredible people; so driven, so passionate and completely committed to achieving their goals.These people could be teachers, students, or administrators, it didn’t matter. The lines blurred and we where all just people. I finally found my home. Continue Reading
