This week I had a chance to meet my classmate Symone Pallett. Symone is a first year speech pathology major. She chose speech pathology because she wants to help people with speaking issues. Working at a mental health facility as a receptionist has influenced her career goals because there she gets to interact with people who have speaking disabilities. Whenever she has free time, she likes to spend it with her friends and dogs. Symone is a very friendly person and I could tell this just by first meeting her. One of her main hobbies is cooking and her favorite thing to cook is what her and her family calls “spider cookies”. They are made with asian dried noodles covered with hazelnut chocolate and the finishing look is a wafer type of cookie. This is a family recipe that she has followed since she began to cook.
