Advice I would give to my younger self includes being open minded and as outgoing as possible. At that point, the universe is going to take care of you because whatever you put out there is what will come back to you. Try to say “Yes” to as many things as possible.
Lola Rodriguez, from Jayuya, Puerto Rico, is a Bilingual Academic Support Professional in the Student Success Center. Not long ago, a new division called Global Voices was created under the umbrella of Academic Support, and that is specifically where Lola works. She adds, “I work with undergraduate and graduate students and provide helpful resources to LIFE’s international students. We help with a little bit of everything because our students are certainly not alike and do not have the same needs.”
