I am deeply grateful to SisterMentors for creating a wonderful cohort that helped me to complete my doctorate. As one of the few Tibetan women in the West, and the first in my family, to earn a doctorate, I am honored to have been a part of this wonderful program. I am most admiring of SisterMentors’ ability to connect women of color Ph.D.s to mentor girls of color from at-risk communities to realize their educational goals. It is a privilege to help empower these girls, many of whom I see as future leaders. Dr. Lewis’s passion for this work, her own background, and her vision are all a great inspiration to me and to other Ph.D.s who want to make a difference in the world.
