The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

Virtual Convocation


Current residence: Silver Spring, MD, US

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

I wanted to get the skills and knowledge that I need to move up in the field. I also love learning and wanted to prove to myself that I could earn a master's degree.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My wonderful and supportive fiancé Mark and my parents. Thanks, y'all.

While in the program, I met classmates from:

All over the country and beyond!

What I liked best about online learning was:

It allowed me the flexibility to work full-time and to do things at my own pace. It was really neat to be able to cue up a lecture any time I wanted. I wasn't confident in my ability to do online learning before I started, and now I've proved that I can do it.

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

How much I learned! I've been able to learn from some incredible professors and I hope to never stop learning throughout my life.

I plan to use my degree to:

Get a job in a special library and use my experience as a jumping-off point for learning and growing more.

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

Freedom! And moving up in the world of professional librarianship.
