I was not excited about going back to school when I first started the SRSC program. In my head graduate school was stressful, strenuous, and tiring.

While it may seem that my interests are far reaching, I feel that one of the best concepts learned through the SRSC is how to dream big, to think about a world where equality and equity thrives and drives a nation, but also to understand how to cope when your goals and vision are not realized.
