Summer Takeaway: 

I have learned the importance of reflection and connection. It is one thing to say that you care about High Road values but it is another to actively work to better communities and shared society for all. To uplift the High Road is, indeed, to act and it is to act in the best interests of people, a goal which may only be attained through personal connection and understanding. It is imperative that we talk to one another and learn from one another so that we may develop shared understandings and make change for the better. It is also imperative that we reflect on our own actions. What we have done in the past may not have been best to achieve betterment and may have even been a slew of mistakes. We must change our behavior accordingly if need be and reflection is the best way of identifying need for changes.


Career Path: 

Career in disability, human rights, or labor & employment law.


Favorite Memory: 

My High Road highlight and favorite memories have been interviewing Buffalonians for my project -- they're all so amazing, know their communities so well, and share the most meaningful tidbits of advice for the future.
