BECAUSE I’M A CSU STEM VISTA…

Being a CSU STEM VISTA has given me greater confidence.

The program helped me gain valuable leadership and communication skills as I work with other VISTAs, students, faculty, staff, and community members. When I began this program, I was shy and lacked confidence in my work. But as I started to work with the students and the program, I was able to to communicate more effectively with staff and students. Another skill that I have gained through this experience has been planning skills. Before starting the program, it was difficult for me to plan an event, but with the support of the team I was able to start organizing events. Overall, this program has given me many professional and life-long skills.
