“The last 12 months provided more time for me to get hands-on and create! I built a DIY home gym (with concrete, sand, and lumber), learned how to refinish and stain several pieces of furniture, and experimented with tons of new recipes (food, baking, and cocktails). Ultimately, I rediscovered how important it is to keep learning in all areas of life, not just academically and professionally.”
