There will always be something you can learn from this community, and that amazes me the most: no conversation will ever be dull or mundane.




WHAT DREW YOU TO THE CSS PROGRAM?

I was drawn to the CSS Program because it exemplifies collaboration and fosters innovation. The program not only teaches us how to become better scholars, but it teaches us how to be more empathetic and open-minded individuals. But I value the CSS community the most. It’s made up of people with different interests, perspectives, and experiences. There will always be something you can learn from this community, and that amazes me the most: no conversation will ever be dull or mundane. The CSS program offers an opportunity to explore the endless possibilities of STEM and – with the help of my peers – to develop the technologies and the science that will jettison us into the next paradigm shift.
