It has been a wonderful adventure! I am currently a senior at Southern Connecticut State University, getting my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, with focuses in Psychology, Sociology, and Creative Writing. In the future, I would like to use writing in therapy, knowing that it is an important tool to help in the healing process.

Starting college last year was one of the best accomplishments I have done to date. I am learning and trying so many new things. My plan is to continue this pattern well after graduation. Susan H.
