Student Spotlight: Aliza Sizemore
I started as a student worker for Stephen Kappeler at the Corbin Regional campus at the beginning of 2015. I’m a Social Work major but I have an interest in Criminal Justice as well. I’ve always had an interest in History, Politics, and Social Justice. I love to constantly learn about these subjects and discuss them with others. I realized early on that I want to make a career out of making sure people from all backgrounds are treated fairly and equally above everything else. The SJS topics that interest me the most are those that deal with social issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, and prostitution.
What do you like best about SJS at the Regional campuses?
I really like all of the classes that are offered under the SJS at the Regional campuses. The classes that you can take to earn your degree teach you about all sorts of different crimes including some that we may not see here in Eastern Kentucky so much. Also, you get to learn about some of the more controversial topics in Criminal Justice such as capital punishment and drug crimes.
What are your plans after graduation?
After I graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, I plan to get my Master’s in Social Work concentrating in Clinical Social Work. Ideally I would love to work in a hospital or mental health facility. I want to make sure that patients are treated well and get the care that they need.
