My time at UR was utterly transformative. From singing in my a cappella group The Octaves, to learning about climate, health, sanitation, and social justice, to working in the Speech Center, to taking every trip possible, I cultivated a community of understanding peers and unparalleled experiences. I traversed the globe, from sugarcane fields in the Dominican Republic to (not quite) tiger sightings on the India-Nepal border, sunset trips up the mountains around Cape Town to karaoke shenanigans in Halong Bay, flat-footing in West Virginia to bayou exploration in Louisiana. There's so much that I don't know -- I'm an excited lifelong learner. (That's me giving the class of '15 Commencement Address)!
