Meet Darnell Jennings, c/o 2015
My sociological background is used quite often in my line of work. It is essential to remain neutral and non-judgmental while interacting with patients as well as the general public. My studies here at Wayne State University have taught me to look deeper than the surface issues and consider all motivational factors when analyzing the actions of society and its members.
