My name is April Smith; my major is fine arts with glass being
my current focus, and I just started my junior year this semester. I study fine
arts because it genuinely makes me happy and relieves some of my everyday
stresses. Alongside working for the CJY, I also work full-time as an assistant
manager at a restaurant (Culver’s). I have been with the same company for over
14 years. Since being in a leadership role, I have improved my listening and
communication skills, verbal and non-verbal. I am skilled at multitasking and
enjoy a challenge.
I enjoy helping others and believe my experiences can help
others be successful, not only with the CJY.
Outside of work and school, I am married (6 years this past
July) and have a five-year-old son. I encourage my son to be a better version
of myself, as well as being himself. I believe I am responsible for raising a
kind, empathetic, respectful human being for future generations.
I love to write.
