Dedicated to Freedom Fighters...

Won’t you help to sing these songs of freedom?
— Bob Marley

Happy 4th! One thing that really resurfaced for me and really sank deep during my recent international travel was how fortunate we truly are here in the United States. I also saw the documentary, "He named me Malala," recently.


I thank God, my creator, for providing a world that is increasingly tolerant of all education. I'm grateful for the blessing to contribute to the advancement of STEM and rise of higher education, particularly for girls and young women. Yet, as I roll up my sleeves and think of my beloved alma maters, I know I have work to do.

I dedicate this post to freedom fighters who press on despite the mountains surrounding them.
