Before this program, I never thought about projects that would let me involve the entire community to work toward a common goal. This program helped me build the confidence I need to follow through the projects on a global scale. My graduate studies broadened my horizons and benefited me personally, professionally and positively impacted my students. I feel that I have the power to create real change.
