1. Describe the skills or attributes you believe are necessary to be outstanding when working in student support services.
You have to be able to relate and understand with the students on a positive level to reach an optimal outcome from any situation.

I would promote a program where African Americans and Hispanic/Latino both have the opportunity to learn about each others cultures so that the students have a better understanding of each other and point out the similarities in each culture so that the students can come together as one.

Throughout my years of employment working with the youth and previous staff members I have learned to be a good listener, a great problem solver in the most chaotic and worst situations, a positive team player and most importantly a compassionate and understanding person. I am enthusiastic about applying my skills which I have acquired through previous experience and I look forward to being apart...
