Hello, my name is Matthew and Next Steps at Vanderbilt has changed my life. I have new friends and new students and I have old friends like Will who I knew a little. At Next Steps I do Vanderbilt classes and Next Steps classes. My Vanderbilt class is Oceanography.
My internship is at LPO (Leadership, Policy, and Organization) office. Right now at LPO I organize the keys. Last semester my internship was with the football team. I was the equipment manager with my friend Will. My favorite thing to do at Next Steps is
to meet new people. My Ambassadores and I have fun together, eat lunch together, work out, have planning time, and circle events. This program will hopefully help me get a job. I would like to get a job at Best Buy.
