Advice for being successful at ASU: Go to class, drink your water, get involved, and don’t be afraid to ask for help—from your professors, your TAs, your friends, and the First-Year Success Center!

FYS Coach Daniel

Name: Daniel
Hometown: Sheridan, WY
College: The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
Major: Justice Studies
Year in school: Senior
Career Goals: To complete my master's program and find my place in a field working toward immigration advocacy, and/or immigration policy advisement and reform. 
Extra-curricular involvement: I spend a fair amount of time in the studio working on and refining my body of artwork, I play sand volleyball recreationally, and participate in various volunteer, advocacy, and activist groups both on and off campus.
Why I wanted to be a coach:  My father has spent over 50 years working in youth and family services, crisis intervention, and family counseling programs. Additionally, through the years, it's been the friends, mentors, family, professors, and colleagues in my life who have helped guide me toward success and through life's inevitable setbacks. As such, I've always had a passion for doing what I can to help people around me achieve their own success... I'm looking forward to doing so through the FYSC!
Advice for being successful at ASU: Don't be afraid to say 'I don't know.' Always voice your questions and don't hesitate to ask for help. Balancing in- and out-of-school life is hard, but there is a community of people and resources out there to help navigate it.
