If you could study any random thing other than HDFS/MFT, what would it be?
I would learn about all my favorite historical figures and actors from all my favorite TV shows! And Harry Potter, I would constantly reread Harry Potter and win all the Harry Potter trivia contests.
What advice would you offer to someone thinking about graduate school?
I think the more that you know yourself, the more successful you will be. Be sure you know what you want from a graduate program so you can tell your fit. Then, in the graduate program, you can know how to handle your stress and organize your life to give yourself the best self-care.
