As I have mentioned in a previous earlier post, I am Jessica Duda. I am a senior at the University of Alabama. As I approach my last semester as a college student, I have been spending a great deal of time thinking about my time at the University, as well as, my future. My favorite part about UA has to be my decision to join a sorority. It has led me to great friends, leadership skills, and so many outside opportunities. An older girl in my sorority who was also pursing a degree in CLS, is a big reason on why I have chosen to stick with the career. She provided me with so much information and help and without Zeta I wouldn’t have been able to gain that extra insight.
My goal for this blog is to share my experience and knowledge on becoming a Child Life Specialist. I hope to inspire someone, even if it is simply just one person to consider taking the career path as a CLS. To show readers to connect to children with compassion and explain the benefits that come out of choosing a career in working with children.
