“The invitation [to participate in a GradFUTURES Virtual Meetup] prompted me to take a good stroll down memory lane as I reflected on how my Princeton training led me to where I am. While my seminars and dissertation inspired my mission, the opportunities I had to chart my own path, organize events, and collaborate with peers and faculty gave me the tools that allow me to drive that mission forward.”
