With that being said, I am beyond honored to be alongside the names of Jeffrey Mishlove Ph.D. and Leo Ruickbie Ph.D. To compete with the world’s top thinkers makes me feel, wow. If wow was an emotion.
Being that this was the first contest I’ve ever entered into and was accepted as a qualified candidate felt magical. To compete in the…
