Your experience with Gender Studies/gender issues at Notre Dame:

It was such a natural fit for me ideologically, it was an awesome experience.


How your Gender Studies education has impacted your life:

I loved that it helped me to shape my broader values about social issues. It really helped me to align myself with the career of social work, as so many of the issues about gender were also about individual groups that are marginalized throughout culture.
