This week's UNI I Am A Hero is Riley Martin!

"I am lucky to know the best RA at UNI. Riley is full of energy, creativity, inspiration and above all is one of my closest friends who actually cares and listens! Riley has put on multiple activities for her house residents and has taken time to get to know them and take them on outings here at UNI. She continuously plans events and makes sure her residents are aware of the opportunities at UNI. Riley is such a health guru as well! Her door is open and she is a very approachable person with a smile on her face.

Riley helped me become aware of the possibilities I have and encouraged me to pursue my goals. I am lucky to get time with her because she is always busy doing something amazing such as her artwork, attending her residents' events and being involved. She speaks her mind and lets you know what's up in the most positive upbeat way. She always finds good in something.

Thank you Riley for being my guide here at UNI and also guiding others to pursue their dreams!

You are my Hero!" - Gayle Nelson
