How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?
Dickinson has prepared me to be a global citizen, to be someone who can not only work well with others but who can understand and communicate with people whose lives are quite different from mine through numerous different factors. Dickinson has allowed me to focus on my interests, while at the same time allowing me to branch out into different areas of interests, keeping an open mindset. I feel very lucky to have had such a great Dickinson education, and I think that will distinguish me even more for the rest of my life.
