“I've had so many opportunities to try things out and figure out what I wanted to explore in the future. I got to take a little flavor from every subject throughout my first year, and I had a lot of access to support and mentors who helped me introspect and decide what fields held what kind of potential and what kind of future I could possibly have.”
