"It is a cliche, at this point in 2020, to say this year has been tough. Personally, it's been an opportunity to connect with my values and goals. I have come to appreciate my family and my work-family even more than before. I truly love my work at CMAE and how hardworking and resilient our students are. I know our work as academic counselors makes a difference in our students' lives. I also learn and grow as a human being by being enriched with my students stories and journeys."
