Our very own @drmchatelain (IL 00) spoke with the Truman-Albright Fellows tonight about applying for graduate school and shared some tips on writing a personal statement. One of the Scholars’ favorite pieces of advice was “don’t apply to graduate school based on your projection of yourself”. Thanks so much, Dr. Chatelain!!

Robin Roberts

Our Scholar Sanah Jivani (18 TX) profiled as part of Robin Roberts #ThriverThursday

At 12 years old, Sanah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of alopecia and bought a wig to cover her head. The bullying was endless and she missed 75 percent of the school year. A week before her freshman year, Sanah decided to ditch her wig and created a Day of Self Love at her school, challenging students to let go of the one thing that tied them down. She even started a non-profit organization, The Love Your Natural Self Foundation that provides free self-love and anti-bullying programming in 135 campuses and 28 countries.
