Make A Difference in the World

"Where can I even begin to describe the impact that this has had on me personally and my future career goals? Starting with my future career goals, this opportunity has left me questioning my decision, accepting my decision and loving my decision all at the same time. It seemed, as every day was different. It certainly assured me that the elderly are the community that I want to work with. I have always known that I wanted to work with people, I just couldn’t find the area that fit me perfect, and now I think that I have!" Cassandra Oberweather -- Class of 2012
