Featured student: Aquanette Early

Name: Aquanette Early
School: University of St. Thomas
Major: Social Work
Minor: NA
"St. Thomas prepared me for professional life outside of the classroom. I quickly learned various levels of professionalism and that there was a time and place for everything. My major courses in social work allowed me to mock typical tasks in my current job. The interviews, group work, needs assessments, graphs, charts, case notes, and fieldwork group conversations are all tasks I do weekly. By the time I started working, I felt like a natural. In the classes we often used our own life, family, and community stories as part of our work. Allowing myself to experience that vulnerability allows me to better relate to my clients."
