Coming in, I thought, “We ought to be more understanding of each other” But, how? Through culture? Policy? Collaboration? Being at CWRU has given me the tools to see how to approach these things.
When I talk to my advisor, it feels like I’m talking to a mentor. In our first email exchange she told me, “You never apologize for something that you want.” It’s one thing to hear it from a friend, but to hear it from an esteemed person gave me confidence.
