Favorite thing about USC Annenberg: The creativity and dynamism of Annenberg's culture, and my supportive peers and mentors. Annenberg has a rich culture that encourages new ideas and opportunities for people interested in both research and practice. I also appreciate the supportive community of my amazing peers, mentors, and Ph.D. alumni who help to build and maintain a positive Annenberg community.
