"My most impactful experience at Pace was through the Lubin Leaders program, as it gave me the opportunity to create an undergraduate thesis. Thereafter, my thesis served as a starting point for an article that Dr. Kadiyala and I collaborated on, resulting in a published article which included my name. This specifically allowed me to separate myself from the rest of those entering a very competitive and unstable job market in 2009."
