" Are educators making it easy for students in different backgrounds to participate? Are educators aware of the students' states of mind? Are educators being mentors? Are educators bringing to light real-life applications of the content being delivered? It is not only the availability of education that says it all, but the availability of quality education. I believe in saving lives like Dr. Derek Shepherd. I am thrilled to be part of the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2020, for the mentoring and sharing of ideas with people from diverse communities. I know from this, I can go ahead and save more lives. "
