During the summer, CollegeSpring mentors met daily with students to work on skill building and college readiness. This month we are spotlighting Christina Oros.

Christina is a Brooklyn College graduate. She majored in Speech Pathology with a minor in Theatre. She aspires to one day educate children with communication disorders utilizing the theatre arts. She chose to incorporate her love of theatre and storytelling into a career of speech communication. On campus, she volunteered to teach health workshops to 9th graders through the Peer Health Exchange organization. At home, she will likely be re-reading her favorite Jane Austen novel or dancing around her aparement. She became a CollegeSpring mentor in an effort to give back to the community by providing all students with access to resources and the support needed to succeed.

In addition to working with CollegeSpring during the 2014-2015 academic year and this past summer, Christina will be returning this upcoming year as one of our instructors at Henry Street Settlement.
