Counselor-in-Training Program, 2019
"I have always longed to be a part of something great and meaningful, while still being able to be who I am and share my beliefs. EDsnaps allows me to do and be more than that. As a counselor, I have learned what it means to be both a leader and a follower and I have come to realize that it doesn't matter who I am, as long as I do my part and do it fairly! Being a counselor allows me to be there for my students, academically, emotionally, and physically. I can be myself with them and teach them to feel the same way towards me. It's important to learn, grow, and shine as long as you have fun doing it."
"True happiness is something we all seek in our lives and we do the things that make us happy to achieve it. Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's easy, but EDsnaps makes the path more clear and understandable. For a while, I did not think that my perspective on things could be clearer and that there was a realm of impossibility that I could never achieve. EDsnaps has shown me that the impossible is certainly possible. It has taught me tools to guide me on the path to achieving that inner happiness. They are with you every step of the way to remind you that it is okay to fail and to treat each mistake as a valuable lesson. In addition to all the resources and assistance that EDsnaps provides, I was also fortunate enough to work with some of the most amazing, talented, and caring people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. They've put things into perspective that I never thought I'd see. Truly an incredible experience."
"For me, EDsnaps is a network of talented, hardworking, and dedicated people who share their passion for STEAM through education and teamwork. One of the things I enjoy the most about the program is that everyone is willing to bring something different to the table; an experience, an idea or an activity that engages us with new forms of diversity and encourages us to interact with our own sense of individuality, as well as our ability to raise awareness about the importance of making girls and young women interested in the STEAM fields."
"For me, EDsnaps is about sharing my passion for art, STEM, and education with my fellow counselors and students. I love showing students that math can be fun and creative and can take their minds to places they never would have imagined. The program has inspired me to take my leadership skills to the next level and to take initiative when it comes to helping students develop a love of math. I hope we can send more women to STEM fields and create a better future!"
"EDsnaps has impressed me with its mission to increase diversity in the STEAM fields. Being an EDsnaps advisor is a good opportunity for me because I am understanding and insightful. I am dedicated to achieving my goals and my desired career. I've always wanted to learn how to become a great leader and help others while doing it and EDsnaps has prepared me for this by helping me improve my soft and hard skills."
"EDsnaps has surprised me with its daily workshops and new opportunities. Being an EDsnaps counselor is a learning experience because it makes you work with different people and allows me to help students. I was once an EDsnaps student and it provided me with new opportunities to meet professionals from different fields and discover what interests me ".
