After being accepted to Tulane’s MJ-LEL program I felt a mix of pride, excitement, and uncertainty. I wondered if I would be able to complete the coursework while working full time and worried I may not be able to excel in a remote learning environment. As suspected, the coursework in my first two semesters proved to be challenging, and at times, I debated whether I’d made the right decision. During my Immersion weekend last July, I finally had the opportunity to meet with my cohorts in person. Hearing about their struggles and challenges made me feel like I wasn’t alone and pushed me to persevere. Exchanging stories about how we’d all faced the wrath of Professor Freidman when providing an incorrect answer during class or on an assignment, or delighted in the moment when he’d issued a compliment gave me the extra push to enter my final semester with renewed optimism and respect for the journey we’ve almost accomplishes. Roll Wave!
