Alumni on Outcomes

There was a really great group of professors and mentors that were there. Professor Anton was definitely one of my main mentors and placed this idea of grad school in my head. He showed me what it’s like being an artist. He helped guide me in a lot of ways.

Humboldt has been a space where I've been given the opportunity to have my voice heard through just being myself and really putting myself out there. I really identify socially as an athlete, but it's like Humboldt gave me a space and an opportunity to identify as an academic as well.
