In the next several months, I hope to be in a position where I am a children’s librarian in a public library. I know that as time goes on, I will develop and change as I am exposed to new people and ideas, but I hope that I will always be an advocate for youth. I hope that no matter where I end up that I try to show my community that children need opportunities to grow and to learn, and that we need to do whatever we can to make this possible. I want to help create a space that is accepting, inclusive, and positive for all families and children, no matter where they come from. I will strive to keep improving and evolving as a professional. I am so excited to start my career, and I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead and the connections I will make along the way.
