I’m still trying to recover from all of the festivities from this past weekend! It was filled with Advocacy Day at the State House, the WIND Conference and graduation day!!
I’m excited to have completed my Master’s Degree in Communication from the College of Charleston. The program was rigorous, but well worth the effort. I appreciated combining my interests of communication with disability awareness. I’ve been able to take the research I learned and apply it to activities happening within the disability community.
My career at the “College of Knowledge” would not have been possible without the support of the faculty and staff. From my very first days as a freshman, the Center for Disability Services office helped make sure that I was able to have access to all of the programs and services offered by the College.
Broadcasting on College of Charleston Radio gave me the confidence and voice to be an advocate for myself and the disability community. It was a great day when the elevator was installed at the Calhoun Annex giving me access to host my radio show from the studio. That was a great feeling!
Professors and advisors guided me along the way to make sure I stayed on the right track. They believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. I have to give special recognition to Dr. Chris Lamb and Dr. Robert Westerfelhaus, who were my undergraduate and graduate advisors, respectively.
I have too many memories to post here on my blog, but I’m thrilled to be a two-time graduate of the College of Charleston! Cougar Pride!
