Ferrah Staley Class of 2018
Since graduating from NU, I was able to jump right into the workforce. Picking Sociology was one of the best decisions of my life. I was able to understand particular situations and societal problems that we see in the workforce and the community. This led me to a career in banking at M&T Bank for the past two years. I became a Regional Relationship Liaison for Commercial and Government banking which allowed me to interact with so many different people. I used my experience and connections to influence not only mindsets but to possibly bring change to surrounding communities. As I further my career, I have now transitioned to Bryant & Stratton College as a Financial Aid Advisor. My hope is to help those students in need to finish their education. Sociology gave me the confidence to find ways to point out injustice or need and remedy them. Hearing what I’ve been up to hopefully encourages more students to learn more about Sociology. It’s not a one track major or mindset. It bends and rises to the occasion.
