Why PAL?

From the start, I felt comfortable and at home in CNR because I knew whenever I had a question, there was always a smiling face ready to answer it for me. I am so excited to have the opportunity to return the favor by being a CNR Peer Advising Leader.
As a fourth year, I feel that I can provide valuable personal experience about a variety of aspects like professors, classes, and clubs. I think that it can be extremely helpful knowing what to expect when going into a new class, so I am really eager to start giving advice to other students to help them get more out of their educational experience. Not only do I want to be a helpful resource for current CNR students, but I would also like to help enrich and expand the college's diversity by promoting awareness about how unique and special CNR's opportunities are. To do this, I would like to recruit new students to CNR and also inform current students about their amazing resources. I really enjoy being around others and am a naturally helpful and friendly person, which is why I feel that the PAL program is perfect for me.

As a PAL, I am looking forward to meeting more of my peers and the faculty that all help make up the wonderful place I call home. I think that this program will really expand my network here at Cal and will also help reinforce my leadership capability. I believe that the experience that I will gain from this program is quite valuable for my future as a dietitian, since my job will be helping others. I am thrilled to learn more about CNR and hope to become an expert PAL so I can be as much help as possible to my fellow classmates.
If I had not been a part of CNR I know my experience here at Cal would have been dramatically different, so I am more than excited to be the smiling face that other student come to for advice.
