What is your overall impression of the WGST academic program?

Eye opening, rich, and impactful. I developed a new perspective about goals, society, and my own identity.

How do you believe completing a WGST major has helped you professionally?

The professors and discussions I was exposed to helped me find focus and passion insocial justice- and articulate why I find certain issues important. I was able to take part in a number of internships through the WGST program, one of which became the job Idreamed about getting post-grad, 2 years later that dream has become a reality.
