Brief statement about how the McNair Scholars Program helped you get where you are today.
McNair has helped me learn the most valuable skill in college and that is the ability to correctly criticize another person's statement or claim. If you get anything out of college, take that skill because it will take you a long way.
Any advice for new McNair Scholars?
Hang in there. The amount of things McNair teaches you subsequent of your initiation may seem overwhelming at first, but it gets easier with time. They chose you for a reason and whatever reason that may be, it's apparent it shines within you as an individual. Whether your aware of it or not.
