I am excited to finally announce that I have accepted my offer to the Urban Education Policy Ph.D. program at the University of Southern California (USC). There, I will also be a Research Assistant for the Pullias Center of Higher Education as I work with Dr. Adrian Huerta, Dr. Adrianna Kezar, and many other amazing faculty members! It has been such an emotional journey to have experienced this rigorous process throughout the past couple of months.
Words are not enough to express my gratitude for the support and empowerment provided by God, my family, and numerous colleagues throughout one of the toughest moments of my life. A special thank you to my mentors and recommenders who prepared me to reach this milestone: Dr. Victor Saenz, Dr. Betty Jeanne Taylor, Dr. Richard Reddick, Dr. Emmet Campos, Dr. Nydia C. Sanchez, Dr. Beth Bukoski,
I am humbled by the acceptances and rejections I received throughout the past couple of months with other graduate programs and job offers. Overall, I am excited to advance to the next chapter of my life!
