Nicole Ramos, Graduate Assistant
My name is Nicole Ramos. I am the Graduate Assistant for the 20:1 sexual assault prevention program. I in the final year of my Masters of Social Work program. In the future, I would like to work with pediatric cancer patients as a social worker. I was an intern for 20:1 when I was a junior at Binghamton University. I look forward to working with 20:1 again because it was be an incredibly rewarding experience for me. It is so important that individuals learn the seriousness involving sexual assault. Educating the interns now involved in the program on such an important topic is very exciting for me. Through 20:1 I know that I learned some facts of my own and I am excited to see the interns learn how to be role models for others on campus. I look forward to continuing to educate students on an ever so present issue in our society.
