"The education and experience attained throughout my time in Human Ecology has forever influenced the person I am today.  The most important thing of all was getting permission to pursue my dreams.  As a student, at times I felt like my dreams were lofty, were impractical and perhaps naïve.  However, I was taught to be realistic while listening to the driving force of my interests and passions; to pursue what I felt compelled to pursue."
