Our career paths may be sparked in our studies, but those flames are fanned by the people—teachers, mentors, teammates, coworkers, and friends—who surround us. Being part of the alumni network and our alumni board has reminded me that there are many people out there who want to see students and fellow alumni succeed. I’m thrilled to be among them, encouraging the next generation.
