How has your Individualized Major through the Liberal Studies Program prepared you for the next stage(s) of your life? 

The Individualized Major has set me up for everything that I have aspired to do. The Individualized Major allowed me to take a hand-crafted path of study focused on protecting and supporting Human Rights at a Domestic and International level. It also allowed me to take on internships and other opportunities that let me put that knowledge into practice during my undergraduate career. These experiences have undoubtedly prepared me to take on Human Rights Law as I pursue further study at Harvard Law School. Without the Individualized Major I would not have had many of the opportunities that defined my undergraduate career.
