I choose to work at The Sandler Center because the best way to battle against drug and alcohol addiction is to stop it before it starts. This graduate assistant position is a wonderful opportunity to educate students on prevention tactics while remaining involved on campus. In my free time, I enjoy visiting cafes, reading books, and taking in a good view.

Major: Finance, Sports Administration

I choose to work at the Sandler Center because I care about my peer’s safety and well-being. I believe that as a peer educator, I am given the tools and the platform to truly impact people’s lives and help them to make smart decisions while using alcohol and other drugs. The Sandler Center is unique in that it allows students to teach other students and removes the barrier of understanding that can arise between students and the administration. As a peer educator, I have the potential to have a real impact on my peers.

Emma Michiels, Peer Educator

Hometown: Englewood, NJ

Major: Human and Social Development

I choose to work at The Sandler Center for many reasons. I first heard about The Sandler Center through two of my close friends at UM who were actually peer educators in previous years. They recommended I apply as they know me to be a person who loves educating and helping others. Another reason I chose to work at The Sandler Center is that I wanted to be involved in a prevention program and gain experience within my field of interest.
