“It wasn’t too long ago when I was at the beginning of my research journey with lots of questions and hesitations. I know the process can feel overwhelming and is a lot to handle on your own. I’m happy to tell you that it’s not something you have to navigate on your own; I’m just one of the many resources here to help you see the potential in yourself and in your work. With the knowledge I’ve gained from my research experience, I’d love to assist you in overcoming any challenges you may be facing in regard to your research journey.”
