This weekend, I went to Berkeley’s “PhD for Me” conference to give a talk entitled, “Navigating Graduate School with a Disability.” Presented to a group of undergraduates with disabilities interested in attending grad school, this talk was my opportunity to share the outlook and tools I used to succeed. I truly believe that with the right accommodations and support systems, any and every student can go far in grad school.

The students who attended were truly amazing, and I wish the best for each of them. I know they will thrive in grad school, in research, and beyond!

I am truly grateful to Berkeley for letting me share my story.
