Quen - Peer Academic Coach

Hey! My name is Quen, and I am a sophomore majoring in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance with a concentration in Privacy. I am a Peer Academic Coach aiming to assist students in achieving their academic and social goals to improve their experience at UM-Dearborn.

After graduating, I plan to pursue a career as a Cybersecurity Analyst, prayerfully with ties to the criminal justice system, and travel the world, fulfilling one of my greatest passions of choreographing for others. My other passions include teaching and participating in Gospel miming, singing and songwriting, and simply making others smile with jokes. I am ecstatic to alleviate any unnecessary strain my peers may experience while working toward their goals by providing our best PAL solutions to change the stress students commonly encounter in college. So, if you need direction or a second ear, PALS is here to help you!

Dakota - Peer Academic Coach

Hi y’all my name is Dakota! I am a junior majoring in Supply Chain Management and Marketing with a minor in Accounting. As a Peer Academic Coach, I look forward to helping students navigate the craziness that is college by helping students learn how to utilize their strengths and the resources available to them. As well as offer advice from my personal experiences.

Besides helping students my other passions include painting, listening to music, Water Polo, and coffee. After college, I wish to work for a non-profit organization such as JDRF. I encourage my peers to reach out if they need advice on classes, time management or are just stressed about the future. I am here to help you achieve your goals and relieve your stress by providing PAL solutions and a friendly reminder that you are capable of anything as long as you believe in yourself!
