Why did you choose the Paralegal program?

I was always interested in the law and how it applies to everyone. After researching what a paralegal does and how their job helps attorneys, I knew it was something I wanted to study and work as in the future.

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

Everything I am learning so far has been interesting! I think the most rewarding thing I’ve learned in my career field is how I can help the community. I've been involved in helping with the Fox Valley Free Legal Clinic, which offers free legal advice to the community.

Why did you choose Fox Valley Technical College?

After graduating high school, I was already interested in attending a two year college. When I moved to Appleton, I heard from family members about the tech and how great the programs are. I knew I wanted to be a paralegal, and when I found out that the college offered a paralegal program, FVTC was an easy choice!

How did Fox Valley Technical College help you change your life?

Fox Valley Technical College has helped change my life in many different ways. I moved to Wisconsin a week before school started, so I came to the area not knowing anyone. I felt like the environment and the people here were very welcoming and helped me through my transition from a high school student to a college student. By joining clubs, I became more involved, learned how to manage my time, and became more independent.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?

I want to find a job in family law or criminal law, which is somewhere that I can use my knowledge of the law to help others and assist attorneys.
