As a LINK Scholar, Deshawn Fuller, a sophomore Finance major and LINK Scholar was featured by the Office of Civic Engagement's student spotlight of the month.
As a LINK Scholar, Deshawn has found that his communication and networking skills have evolved. Through the LINK program, which connects minority students with mentorships in underrepresented fields, Deshawn has had the opportunity to network with influential members of the community and fellow student leaders at CSU.
"Being a LINK Scholar has definitely made me a better student," he said. "LINK helps me stay focused and set goals which make me work even harder to obtain those goals."
When Deshawn graduates, he hopes to work in finance and, someday, he'd like to become the CFO for a business. But that doesn't mean he doesn't plan to stay civically involved.
"I absolutely plan on giving back to the community, he said. "I would like to be apart of an organization where the youth can come learn about life at an early age as well as have sporting events where they could enjoy themselves as well."
