My name is Candy Bridgers. My life goal is to empower individuals, spread happiness, and live peacefully. People and our differences are fascinating! I love people, diversity, and traveling. I plan to visit all 7 continents, experience different cultures and meet new folks. My favorite movies are Dreamgirls and The five heartbeats, I could sing and watch them all day! My favorite comedians (right now) are Dave Chappelle and Trevor Noah. You can always count on me for uplifting quotes. My words of wisdom for today, come from Dory in Disney’s Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming”.

My name is Rebecca Levelle and I chose this career path because I love working with college students.  I enjoy finding ways to support and empower our students to find their voice and achieve their goals. The biggest lesson I have learned in my life is the importance of owning my story and having the courage to ask for help when I need it.  In my free time, I love to cook for my family and friends.  I also enjoy working in my garden and teaching my children how food grows.
