I have learned so much about gender discourse and historical perspectives on women's movements globally. This GWS MA is a launchpad for farther exploration of feminist organizing and contribution to feminist scholarship. I am so grateful to Dr. Chris Garlough - my academic advisor & three time TA supervisor, Dr. Finn Enke and Dr. Nancy Kendall - my thesis committee, Dr. Aili Tripp - Department Chair, and all the professors, staff and students I worked with in this department. Thank you.

As I begin my work as a health care case manager at a housing organization in Chicago, I am grateful for everything I've learned in the GWS MA program. My time in this department has already helped me serve others in a way I can be proud of, and I will carry all of the lessons I've learned here into the future. Thank you to all of my colleagues, professors, and staff of the GWS department who have supported me and taught me so much about life, learning, and caring!
As I prepare to graduate this summer, I find myself reflecting about how much I have learned in the GWS MA program. I’m very grateful for my advisor Finn Enke who has supported me along the way and helped me trust the whole process and myself. I am thankful for the rest of my committee, Annie Menzel and Anna Campbell, for their guidance and feedback throughout this journey. I have made some lifelong connections in this department that I will carry with me wherever I go. Chi Miigwech.
