How have you grown during your time at SPU? My growth at this institution has been made possible by professors like Dr. Jennifer McFarlane Harris, Dr. Matthew Bellinger, and Dr. Amy Robertson, who allowed me to be a full person and not just a student, giving me the support and empowerment I needed to endure dire circumstances. From online classes to sit-ins to lawsuits to capstones and beyond, I am a different person than I was four years ago, and I am eternally grateful.
