I want to develop and evaluate programming that supports older adults’ self-determination and autonomy throughout life transitions. I will advocate so that a person’s definition of a “high quality of life” is central to our work with older adults.
I knew that the U-M School of Social Work at Michigan could challenge me and help me gain the knowledge and experience to impact the issues I care about. There are so many opportunities here! It’s one of the many reasons Michigan is a great school. With this degree I can make the difference I want to make.
Donors are the reason I am here at U-M. Without my scholarship I would not have been able to come. I hope one day I can give back to other students who need support.
