"I am so grateful for this honor of serving as the student speaker for the College of Education's Spring 2021 commencement. It has been an immense privilege to learn with and from these caring, world-changers during our time at the University of Iowa.

To our families, faculty, staff, administrators, teachers, students, and community members, thank you for supporting and challenging each of us in our journey of becoming professional educators: we would not be who we are today without your influence. As we go and influence our students, we will teach, yet always as learners first."
