Why did you decide to attend graduate school?

I have a passion for education and teaching, and I decided to see how that motivation and commitment could be developed at the graduate level.

What are your career plans post-graduate school?

My career plans are to continue researching and teaching on how diversity can be incorporated into the language and writing classroom.

What advice would you give undergraduates thinking about graduate school?

What has helped me most during the application process is collaborating with inspiring and supportive mentors and professors.
