Discipline: Social Work
Faculty Mentor: Stephen F. Gilson, Ph.D.
My name is Tiffany Ann Belanger. I am a 22 year-old recent graduate from the University of Maine. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work and am continuing my education at the University of Maine to earn a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I have spent the last three years working with adults and children with developmental disabilities. I became intrigued by the people I worked with and have decided I would like to pursue a career where I can continually learn and assist individuals with developmental disabilities.
Throughout my undergraduate career I had been active in a few different extra-curricular activities around campus. I was in the Student Social Work Organization for three years, one year as secretary, one year as vice-president and finishing my last year as president. I was also involved in a student led organization on campus known as Green Campus Initiative where I was the public relations representative for a year. I am a recent alumnus of Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority which I was an active member for two years, holding an executive leadership position as the public relations representative for one year. I look forward to learning more about how to be a leader and sharpening my skill set.
