The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

Virtual Convocation


Current residence: Port Jefferson Station, NY, US

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

“I have an unshaken conviction that democracy can never be undermined if we maintain our library resources and a national intelligence capable of utilizing them."
Franklin D. Roosevelt

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

I have so much gratitude to my friends, family, mentors, fellow students and professors. Without their support these past few years, I could not have achieved this major accomplishment in my life. A special thanks to Michael Stursberg, who never stopped believing in me, and for that, I am forever grateful.

While in the program, I met classmates from:

Many different backgrounds and countries. What a joy to meet so many wonderful, inspiring and smart people!

What I liked best about online learning was:

One of my favorite parts of the online learning experience was having the opportunity to mentor and assist incoming MLIS graduate students. In addition, I enjoyed doing online presentations and getting to be creative, while helping students and professors with fun technologies.

What I enjoyed most about my experience at the SJSU School of Information was:

The open exchange of ideas with interesting professors and fellow students, on how we can strengthen our library services and connect with the community.

I plan to use my degree to:

Work towards becoming a public librarian, where I can take part in providing excellent service to my community.

Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:

Starting my career, teaching technology to people in a fun and exciting way, performing outreach and developing technology literacy workshops. I'm also looking forward to having the time to spend with my nephews and niece and traveling again. I can't wait to have a fun Summer with my dogs!
