Nellie Silva2.jpgNellie Silva ’06 (William M. Davies Career Tech High School) is graduating from the Community College of Rhode Island this spring with an A.S. in Administrative Assistant. Nellie believes that all the programs and activities she participated in as a Crusader helped her become more self-confident. “If I had to summarize the experience in three words,” she says, “it would be ‘life-changing experience.’ The activity I loved the most was CAAP 101, the Crusade Adventure & Academic Program. I am a mentor right now, and I get to see how I can change a kid’s life just like the Crusade changed mine.”

Nellie has sound advice for Crusaders who are starting college next fall. “Consider internships,” she says. “They will help you get a foot in the door for a job right away after college. Be serious about your education,” she adds. “Take your time picking a major, and ask for help in making that decision.”
