Hello CSS Community: My name is Yannick Alexis and I am currently a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Fire Protection Engineering with a minor in Spanish Culture & Business. This past summer, I had the opportunity to intern at Jensen-Hughes; the largest Fire Protection engineering consulting firm in the nation! This was my first major specific internship and the experience was truly enriching. I enjoyed bonding with coworkers, completing meaningful work, and, most importantly, having an opportunity become indoctrinated into different areas within the field of fire protection!

One of the most critical components of achieving success in any environment is feeling that you belong. Once you feel like you belong and become comfortable, it becomes easier to overcome doubt and mental barriers that stand between you and your success. One important way that you can come to feel comfortable is by seeing that there are others around you who are similar to you, facing similar adversities, and are succeeding. The College Success Scholars program has surrounded me with a community of brothers and scholars who share the same goals as me and face many of the same challenges and adversities that I do. The support from this community has done a great deal in convincing myself that I can be successful, and providing me with the resources needed to achieve this success.
