This Thursday will mark the culmination of nearly six years of graduate school for me as I will be defending my thesis. Working towards my PhD has been the longest, biggest, marathon-like challenge of my life thus far, filled with plenty of highs, lows, and periods of self doubt (as is common for many in grad school). I’ve been to a dark place a number of times and nearly quit in the middle of my third year, but somehow found the courage to start a new research project all over again from scratch.
