If I wasn't an Academic Advisor I would have been a teacher. I'm very patient, and I love to break down large amounts of information for others to understand (much of what I do as an Academic Advisor); these, of course, are important skills for any teacher to have. I believe that the education system would improve a lot more, especially in poorer communities, if we hired more teachers who're more patient and understanding, and who have a mission to do whatever it takes (of course within boundaries) to help their students achieve graduation, eventually pursuing higher learning.

My major in college was English and I chose it because I like to read and write, and I also understood that I would be challenged in ways I've never been challenged before.  My writing skills have been developed, and I'm able to read a lot more than I've ever been capable of.  The English major definitely builds your reading endurance. 

The top three life skills that I learned while in college are:
1) Time management
2) Communication
3) Deciphering large amounts of information

My favorite book is:
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.
