Inspired By

This opportunity would not have been possible without the significant time Dr. Steven Brooke, Dr. David Buckley, and Dr. Kristopher Grady invested in me during my studies in the political science department. Each of them took the time to get to know me, as well as my specific academic interests, creating an environment where I was constantly encouraged to explore my own interests through the material being taught in the classroom.
