Meet Jayla Wilson

​​​​​​​Jayla Wilson OCE Post Pic.jpg​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What benefits do you feel you gained from being part of the OCE Viking Corps program?
I learned that we all possess different strengths that go towards bettering our community and the people of our community. We can celebrate our differences and learn from each other to gain more knowledge. We can all learn something from one another whether it's the student learning from the tutor or the tutor learning from the student. The more we learn as a community, the further the people in our community can go.

What rewarding or special experiences have you had as a tutor at Davis Aerospace and Maritime and the CPL?
To me, the most rewarding experience is watching students get excited after completing their work. They feel a sense of accomplishment and it's very rewarding to see and makes helping even better.

What impact do you think you have on your community by working at Davis A & M and the CPL?
​​​​​​​I think that I have a great impact on the students. I've encouraged them to continue doing their work and asking for help whenever they need it. I hope that I've helped them become comfortable with getting help with schoolwork.​​​​​
