Rudney DanquahPersonal Statement:
I am excited and honored to get the opportunity to work with such a diverse population of students. College is a time for exploration and growth and through this opportunity, I hope to be able to help students from all backgrounds develop functional interventions that they can implement for years to come. I believe that each individual person has strengths that they can identify and use in the areas that they struggle with the most and it is important that each person feels  a sense of congruence within themselves. It is my opinion that a person's thoughts, actions, and feelings are not separate from each other and they play such an important role in how the individual chooses to navigate through life. I hope to provide an environment where each student feels safe, accepted and heard. In my free time,  I enjoy watching reruns of Reba and the Golden Girls and working on puzzles of all kinds (mainly Jigsaw and Sudoku).
