During National Allied Health Week, we're interviewing CAHS alumni who are making a difference


We sat down with some of our alumni who are currently working in allied health during National Allied Health Week. See what they are up to today and how their UC degree helped them get there. Eunique Avery headshot Eunique Avery Name: Eunique Avery, '18 Current Title: Director of Strategic Initiatives in the Office of Inclusive Excellence & Community Engagement Current Employer: College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati Programs graduated from: Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program How did UC prepare you and set you up for success in your career? While at UC, I not only had the ability to learn new things from an academic standpoint, but also the ability to learn new things about myself on a personal level. As a first-generation college student, I struggled with imposter syndrome for the majority of my time at UC. Growing up, I very seldomly received positive affirmations or words of encouragement from my teachers. Luckily, I had some really great professors like Dr. Dana Harley, Amy McMahon and Xan Boone who really went the extra mile to support their students. Throughout my experiences at UC, I began to gain the self-confidence I needed to become the best version of myself. As a social work student, I was able to enhance my cultural competency skills, attend national conferences and gain exposure in various fields within social work. These experiences shaped my decision to go on to pursue my Master's degree in Public Administration.
