Ever since I first stepped foot onto this campus, UC has made me grow and develop in my passion for wanting to be a leader. UC has given me the confidence I need to never underestimate myself, and allows me to venture through my collegiate years immersing me into a professionally and culturally diverse environment. Without the guidance from my educators at UC who care to see me strive in my academics, I would have never stepped out of my comfort zone and interned in Washington, DC this past semester. That truly enriching adventure helped me to view the world in ways that I would have never seen it before, and I owe that experience all to UC. I am Cincinnati Smart.
