I have the unconditional support of family and friends, some of whom applied to Walden after hearing about my experience.
Walden University has taught me to act on my passions and address societal challenges using research and investigation. Transforming society is my goal and the goal of a Walden scholar.
I find that when I educate, whether in a formal or informal environment, I learn from my students as much as they learn from me.
