How I have grown at CWRU:

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.

Best encouragement I’ve gotten:

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.
