If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? I would love to be omnilingual as my superpower, meaning that I could understand and speak any language. I love to travel, but I am really bad at foreign languages, so it would be amazing to be able to go anywhere, talk with anyone and not be worried about speaking the right language.


Advice for prospective graduate students:  Make sure to find a program that is going to fight for you and try their best to train you for your future goals. It is so important to be in a program that wants to see you succeed, knows who you are, and can connect you with people and opportunities that will help you advance your career.
