Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) facilitating is a mentoring and leadership job at Sacramento State University. The PAL Program was created for STEM classes that prove to be extremely difficult by their pass/fail rates, including classes in chemistry, biology, physics, and math. The PAL program was developed to help students in these classes. PAL facilitators are hired for a specific class, one that they have successfully passed, and are instructed to sit in a lecture for said subject, hold office hours for all students of that class, as well as hold a class for up to 15 students, where they are facilitated through problems and material. The goal is to facilitate and help these students grasp material and understand what is being taught at a much greater rate. Through studies, this program has increased individual student's grades (those who actively participate in their PAL classes) up to 10% or a complete letter grade. I was hired to facilitate for Physics 5A, which was the first of two physics classes for students pursuing degrees in areas such as biology, computer science, and kinesiology.
-I have been a Competitive Artistic Roller Skater for nearly 20 years. Since 2006, I have won 13 national titles, as well as numerous national placements. In 2015, I made the official USA Team, where I would later represent our country at the Artistic Roller Skating World Championships on the junior team in Colombia and Italy. In 2017, I made the Senior team, and have since represented the United States of America on the USA Team in China, France, and most recently Spain. I have placed as high as 8th in the world, and am still training at a high level to become stronger and better everyday, with the hopes of making my sixth USA Team in the future. I have attached my Team USA biography; however, it is in the process of being updated so it is a few years behind.
-In 2016, I was awarded the Gold Award, which is the Girl Scout's highest honor. For my project, I worked with the primary foster care facility in Auburn, California to renovate their meeting rooms where parents and children in the foster system were able to meet, reunite, and reconnect during supervised visits. The goal of the project was to promote a positive, uplifting, and light-hearted environment for important relationships to be built. The project included furnishing the rooms, collecting safe books, interactive toys, games, and play-materials while providing children of all ages (through the age of 17) with a comforting and safe place to work and/or build relationships with their parents. Upon receiving this award, I was invited to the State Capital to spend a day with a California House of Representatives congresswoman.
