Families and Children

It’s been a long road for me. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs that almost made me quit, but God has other plans. I’ve laughed, cried, bared my heart to total strangers, had random yet life changing conversations. In every class I learned more about myself- how I can change, improve, and better serve others. Overall, this program has been beautifully challenging. My time has not only prepared me to be a good social worker, but a better person! I’m ready to find my “corner of the world”, as Professor Powell would say and be a catalyst of change there. Thanks for playing a part in “my story” UMB School of Social Work. I am forever grateful.
