RISE is an opportunity I could never imagine missing. Honestly, I didn’t exactly know what to expect when I got here. Upon arrival, I received warm welcomes from some of the students and the Director, Dr. Laurie Thorp herself.
RISE is more than environment sustainability. There is a sense of inclusion in various activities happening around and outside Bailey.
It is a group of diversity, very many people from all other continents coming together with a common goal of excellence for the environment in all different aspects.
It is a family where I get to learn and develop my scientific aspect. People are caring and willing to help all through.
Besides the scientific aspect of Rise, it is an opportunity for me to grow and develop my professional skills as I gear towards my future plans.
The commitment and passion from the mentors and professors to help you become a better person is fascinating.
