Significant life lesson you've learned while at
ECU: The most significant life lesson that I have learned while at ECU is that I should not be afraid or embarrassed to ask for guidance or support from others. When I first moved to Greenville, North Carolina I did not know anyone and I was very afraid of asking how to succeed in the program. When my parents and sisters left Greenville to head back to Ohio, I had never felt more alone in my life, but now sitting at my computer less than a year later, I could not feel more support or love from the people I have met here. Within the first week of graduate school, I realized that in our program everyone supports one another both in and out of the classroom in order to succeed in the program and in life. Not only have I made life-long friends with girls who were once complete strangers to me, but I have learned that the professors within the CSDI department are some of the kindest people that I have ever met. The CSDI faculty’s genuine support and enthusiasm to help students succeed at ECU is unique and heartfelt. Though I am hundreds of miles from my sisters and parents, I truly feel that I am part of a CSDI family and I could not be more thankful for the kindness and generosity that ECU has shown me.
