Maya Mendoza-Exstrom '03 comes calling

A few days back I was lucky to have Maya Mendoza-Exstrom '03 come to our department's 200-level course on writing and research. I've used the class over the past few years to bring in alums to talk about life after UPS, and Ms. Mendoza-Exstrom was quite inspirational for the students, having gone to law school but kept a sense of perspective during and since. One student remarked to me later here presentation "I was relieved to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel."

Afterwards a few of us had dinner to thank her for her visit. Much appreciated!
