Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.
McNair provided invaluable resources and support that were exceedingly, abundantly, above all I could have asked or expected. Of course they are the reason I am going to grad school, but they are also the reason I know I will finish.
Any advice for new McNair Scholars?
Believe in your work and listen to your body.
My research project was called "What is the Black Star," lead by Professor Walton Muyumba in the English Department.
