"I am deeply aware that I would not have this job without the community here that made getting it possible, and I am deeply grateful to my teachers and colleagues. They pushed me to be able to do more and better than I first could dream for myself. Their dreams for me were bigger than mine, and they not only helped me to see that potential, but they also led me there.
