Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.

The McNair program has allowed me to grow as a scholar and researcher by giving the skills and the necessary training to make myself a better academic. The program has also helped me navigate and understand the world of academia and has given me the opportunity to travel and share my research with colleagues all over the country.

Any advice for new McNair Scholars?

Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself when people challenge your knowledge. Share and demonstrate what you know with others and be confident in your research.
