The CSS program has truly been transformational in my transition into manhood. I have been extremely lucky to be in such a prestigious program and to meet so many great scholars. I have met some of the most dedicated and passionate scholars since my matriculation into the program. I will continue to maintain the lifetime friendships that I now have. One thing that resonates with me is when Dr. Lester says the journey is just as important as the destination. After being in this program, I feel like I have all the tools necessary to start the next chapter of my life. Without this program, I don’t know where I would be. I am truly grateful for all the energy that Dr. Lester, the graduate students, and the team leaders put into the CSS program. Their hard work does not go unnoticed. This program is inspirational and I hope it continues to reach new levels of success.
