OSU Experience: “I am the first person in my family to attend graduate school, and during my M.A. at OSU, I discovered the opportunities that academia afforded me to employ my skills in the investigation and service of the community. As a result, I decided to pursue my Ph.D. in Linguistics and through the support of my advisor, professors, and OSU, have continued to develop my research, extension, and teaching skills.”
