Social Work


In this oral presentation I will be sharing a few writings from my TELOS honors portfolio. Topics regarding leadership, social justice and service, transformation, exploration, and future career goals will be discussed. These writings represent a letter to myself. The things I have accomplished and discovered during my time here at Fontbonne and my journey into adulthood are all laid out on the table. To be able to share my truth and passions with peers, staff, and faculty at Fontbonne will be another affirmation that I have made it this far, and my future presents many more exciting and eye-opening experiences for me to discover. I want everyone to go on this journey of self-discovery with me; I want to be an example and inspiration to other students, especially Black students, who feel like their voice does not carry weight.
