Graduate student Danielle Wrenn comments on her experience at the NCCA 2017 Conference

“This conference allowed me to access tools I never knew existed. I had a great time meeting new people and seeing familiar faces. It helped me find my own voice and sense of confidence in becoming a future counselor. The research excited me and I was drawn to certain presentations. I went to several others throughout the day, but the ones mentioned above grabbed my  interest the most. I am not one to actually want to conduct research, but I do want to be up to date on current research being conducted in the field. If I get a chance to take part in another NCCA conference, I will take the opportunity and go so that I can continue to expand my interest and knowledge base.”
-Danielle Wrenn, Second Year Graduate Student at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
