Ariel Hirsh ’14
Master’s Student in Mental Health Counseling at University of Dayton
During my time as a student at OWU, I forged relationships with professors and peers, improved my ability to evaluate ideas critically, and honed my writing skills tremendously. I got to spend time doing something I love: exploring the many ways of thinking about the world. Now, I am a more versatile and multifaceted candidate for employment, who appreciates how different systemic philosophies can guide our lives. Since I graduated OWU in June 2014, I have begun to pursue a career in the field of mental health, which complements my strong desire to explore divergent viewpoints as well as have a deep impact on the well-being of others. In 2016, I began a Master’s program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Dayton, and I am excited to begin working directly with clients. Because of my philosophy degree, I am equipped with skills I can use to better understand others’ unique perspectives, so that I better able to serve them in the future.
