After spending my first semester at UVM in the sciences with the intention of pursuing a career in medicine, I enrolled in an introductory class called Foundations of Social Work taught by Celia Cuddy. The class changed my perspective of the field completely.
Education gave me an opportunity to escape poverty, and ingnited a passion for helping young people to pursue their dreams.
“I never thought that some of my most important role models would be children,” says University of Vermont elementary education major Marshall Murphy. “They’ve shaped who I am as a person. As much as I try to teach them, they teach me right back.”
