My name is Nina Silva and I am a twenty-two year old student at Rhode Island College. I am currently in my fifth year at RIC in hopes to pursue a degree in Youth Development, with a minor in Psychology. I’ve always loved working with children and thought that this major would give me a great opportunity to reach out to them, in a way that was different from teaching. I hope to positively influence the lives of children and help them to reach their maximum potential. Some experiences that I’ve had with youth include being a childcare counselor, teacher’s assistant, and a babysitter. I hope to learn more about the needs of youth and to use my knowledge to motivate and inspire.
