CWRU Thoughts


Maria Fazal/Observer

Maria Fazal, Staff Reporter

Q: What made you decide to work at Case?
A: Before I came here, I used to work in a prison system. The floor I worked on had 60 male youths. I did that for 12 years. After 9/11, budgets everywhere were being cut, and I found myself coming to work and working by myself. I was getting burnt out. I got tired of being locked up myself—that’s what I started feeling. I always wanted to stay in a situation where I still dealt with youths, so now I’m at Case Western Reserve University giving all the love I have to this institution and the student body.

Q: What’s your favorite part of your job?
A: You guys—and I mean the student body. If it weren’t for you guys, I would not be here. You guys are what keep me going. You guys are my fuel. Without you guys, my engine would run out, and I would just leave.
