I feel my vocation in this life of mine is to equip myself with the education and knowledge in order to see and make the world an equitable, peaceful, and better place for all. I believe in the power global studies has, especially with GS being interdisciplinary, it has always pushed my boundaries and allowed me to critically examine the world and grow as a learner, social justice advocate and human being.
