Roberta Liete is a junior majoring in Exercise Science and Health Promotion. She was accepted to Florida Atlantic University from FAU's backyard of Boca Raton, Fla.
Roberta says she chose FAU because of its location and the diversity. She says FAU has provided me with several wonderful opportunities for growth whether it being getting professional advice from the career center, attending leadership workshops on campus, or presenting to a freshmen class about bystander intervention. Every experience made an impact on me that will truly help me for my career in the future.
Roberta state that's she has learned that it is important to not be too extreme and to find a healthy balance between school work and other activities, that way you are able to be more productive. "By working at the Owls Care Health Promotion Office, I learned how to deal with my stress in a healthy manner. You must find a healthy balance. At first you may be overwhelmed from the transition from high school to college and may not want to add more to your plate, but college is all about experiences. FAU offers various clubs, I recommend finding one you like and also be open to try out new ones, you never know what you will like until you try it."
