Academic Advisor, Northern Virginia Community College

Sociology has really helped me communicate effectively with my students both in English and Spanish and interact with them.

As an Academic Advisor at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA), I work daily with students who have different cultural backgrounds, ethnicities, races, ages, and economic statuses. By working with a diverse population, I have learned to take people's various backgrounds into consideration and provide possible solutions based on their individual needs. My education in Sociology was a fun, informative, and eye-opening experience that is useful in every aspect of my personal and professional life.
