Quite frankly, I would not be where I am today without the tools given to me as a student in the AJO program. Though it was often taxing to balance the program and a full time job as a staffer on a presidential campaign, my professors never failed to give me grace and the confidence to trust my intuition and narrative voice. I would also be remiss not to mention the energy and shared passion of my peers that sustained me on a daily basis.”
