What is the one thing that inspires you?

Paying it forward and training students for careers in media

Witnessing students embrace the curriculum, achieve their goals, and own their future

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Embrace what you love and make a career out of it. Create boundaries. And failure is the road to success.

1000 Spotlights: Why We Give reflects our mission of giving back, to mentor and to inspire those around us.

Through a series of interview questions, we explore academic inclinations and intrinsic motivations behind why we give, and talk with those inclined to make a difference in the lives of students. If you are involved in charitable activities, volunteer and paid academic engagements or in community service, we want to talk to you.

Write to us to nominate yourself or someone else who fits the bill.
