Why did you decide to attend graduate school?
I want to change U.S. federal housing policy and obtaining a Ph.D. gets me a step closer to a position in which I can do so.
What are your career plans post-graduate school?
I hope to obtain tenure track professorship at a well-regarded university in order to build a portfolio of academic and public scholarship pursuant to an eventual position as U.S. Secretary of HUD.
What advice would you give undergraduates thinking about graduate school?
Pay attention: it’s easy to get distracted by the fact that this is your first time on your own.
