How has the Union helped you become more than a student?

"With the help of the Union Director, Crystal King, I was able to have a space that allowed me to work and see my passion for Unique Heels to come to fruition. Without her personal insight, access to the conference rooms, and great help from the Operations staff, it would have been very difficult for Unique Heels to evolve as much as it has to this day. Outside of academia, the Union has enabled me to be a voice for minority women."
