So it’s the moment we’ve all been dreading. My last day as a student worker in the Students First Center. It was cool having my own little site to update and share my thoughts about UCM with you! I hope I was able to help you to a certain degree. This is my 2nd to last post. I want to properly introduce you all to the other student workers you can follow while I’m away dealing with the tough Financial Aid questions lol but it was really nice getting to know you all and I wish you much success in the future! You are all bright shining stars in the world :)
YAY!!!! It’s been such a pleasure working in the Students First Center for the past year and a few months as a student worker and now I have the opportunity to be a full-time staff member! UC Merced has been BEYOND good to me these past 5 years and it is a great honor and pleasure to be able to say I work for this fine institution doing what I do best…helping people! Here at the SFC our mission to help the students and I am thrilled to say I am joining this great staff in that mission! They were a great help to me throughout the years and I am excited to say that I can now be the one to help you all in a bigger capacity! This awesome good news does come with sad news as well though. As of this coming Friday I will no longer be a student worker and therefore I will no longer be sharing with you my perspectives on this site nor my twitter account @vkempsfc. It has been great talking to you and helping all of you and I wish you the best this year and years to come! I’m moving on up to the big seats and I’m overjoyed that I’ve been given this opportunity! I will miss all of you and have a GREAT first day of school tomorrow!! :)
It’s almost the first day of school again and for the first time in all of my life (that I remember) it won’t be for me. No school for me this year! It feels good to say that lol I’m officially taking a break from exams and studying and all that jazz to just work at my new job! Announcement about that coming soon! But anywho enjoy fall semester everyone!! I’m sure it’ll be a blast :)
This is perfect for me! I’m definitely not where I thought I would be, BUT I’m enjoying my new journey just the same :)
