  1. Thank you for bringing us inside your magical journey and letting us feel the excitement. Her composure made me smile and understand what “standing on the shoulders of giants” means. Your words that question whether you were deserving of your next steps into corporate law hit home for me as I struggle to learn how to just walk through and organize a literature review and remain on topic. Sometimes I wonder if someone fell asleep on their computer and pressed the “Accepted” checkbox as they startled awake and have been too kind to let me know. Thank you for your story.

  2. It is no fun when your very identity limits the likelihood of being given “the benefit of the doubt that others receive.” Taking away that luxury from those who look a certain way, or are in some sense heterodox, is an unfortunate maneuver we see from both extremes of the main political aisle.

    Thanks for the reflections!
