"My professors urged me to push beyond what I saw as my limitations and exposed me to great opportunities like Research Experiences for Undergraduates. I was able to conduct research on graph theory and was invited to present my findings at conferences in Ohio and Colorado. I also served as a Supplemental Instructor and a math tutor."
