Thank you, Dr. Woo. It really meant a lot to have you and Mrs. Woo there! Your positive comments after the talk are still sinking in– I still can’t wrap my head around them. Of course, as a student, you are always looking to impress your mentor. So now, with you focusing your feedback on the finer points of my presentations (tempo and emotion), it makes me feel like I have finally arrived as your student! The art of presentation was always an MSRC focus, so I’m especially glad that I was able to make you proud. I have learned from the best!
