Being from the Poverty Class in Graduate School
Jordan Bray

Hi Deborah,

Your writing resonates with me. I am just about to start my journey towards a PhD…late in life as usual! Similarly to you, I raised 3 of my siblings throughout late highschool and college, which presented its own set of challenges with regard to completing “life goals according to protocol.”

Your honesty in sharing your thoughts and experiences is inspiring to me. Also, I truly appreciate your drive to speak with balanced perspectives in partnership with passion. That takes a lot of introspective contemplation.

Thank you for continuing to write and share! I look forward to your future pieces.
