Vanessa Vergara

Pre-nursing major, from Onarga, Illinois

I am a member of the cheer team at CUC, which has helped me grow as a leader and as a team player who can work well with others. I also participate in the Science Club and the Nursing Club. The clubs I'm involved with benefit me by giving me opportunities to learn outside of the classroom — for example, when speakers are invited to our club meetings to inform us about internships or nursing programs.
