“My advice is to the current M.S. students is to know your worth. A lot of the young professionals, myself included, tend to undermine our talents when in reality, we are worth more than what we think. When applying for future careers, you will never find your dream job in your 20’s. But always look at life in a positive but realistic way and know that you will always start from something small and then work your way up.”
