What do you enjoy most or what have you found most rewarding about working with the MMUF fellows? The most rewarding aspect of working with MMUF fellows is interacting with a group of talented students and watching their ideas develop. I enjoy sharing my experiences with the fellows and having the opportunity to assist them in their respective journeys.

Program: Philosophy

Field/Specialization: Phenomenology of Race and Feminist Epistemology

What do you enjoy most or what have you found most rewarding about working with the MMUF fellows? What I have most enjoyed about interacting with the students and their ideas/work is the fact that in every encounter there is a commitment to life.  This driving force to be in the world, even this hard world at turns dispiriting and disappointing, is, because of them and their work, not without (the possibility of) beauty, joy, determination, and hope.
