People of Western - Andrea Clark

Andrea Clark will be graduating from the Human Services Associate program in April 2016. Her family is a big influence in her life and she has a large support system between her family, her networks and friends at Western Technical College. Andrea believes these networks have been pivotal in her success as a student: “When you have people like that in your corner, how can you not succeed?” Andrea looks forward to sharing her story with others and aspires to educate people about how to help others who are living with disabilities: “That is one of my biggest challenges, is letting people know that just because I have a disability doesn’t mean I am different and you can’t treat us different.” To accomplish this, she hopes to one day write a book and/or be a public speaker.
