What made you decide to become an educator and a communications professional?

How did it occur to you that your profession is your calling?
I think it stops being a profession and becomes a calling when you enjoy the things you do for a living.

Having a strong core value of faith allows me to be more resilient when tested and survive tense situations in the workplace. Teaching is the epitome of being a servant and I am thankful for the opportunity to be of service via St. La Salle’s mission of teaching.
How will you promote to your fellow young Lasallians the vocation that you have chosen? What advice can you give them?
Try to pursue a vocation that you relish and a profession that gives you a secure future.
