Finding purpose at SBSLC - student reflection

Attending the Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference is one of the best experiences I have ever had in my whole college career. 

This conference gave me more insight on what it means to a true leader and embrace the unknown. The highlight of my SBSLC experience was finally finding clarity in what I want to do with my life, and my psychology degree. It happened while attending Odell Bizzell's workshop, "I Am Fourth: The Principles and Power of Servant Leadership." This workshop gave me the inspiration to become a marriage counselor and use my gift to help people struggling in their marriages. 

I thank God, Tarleton State University, and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, for blessing me with the opportunity to meet other students from around the country who are striving reach their dreams just as I am, this is an experience I will NEVER forget.
