Quote: “The most meaningful thing that the Division of Biological Sciences and MU Graduate School did for me was to free me to grow into the shoes of an academic. I was given the space and support to work within multiple departments to explore all aspects of my science. By working with mentors in science, education, diversity, and religion, I was able to build the core that supports my current work.”
