It took a total of over 24 hours to make the promo video for my research including the time it took to write the script, film the narration, find additional footage & photos, and edit it all to a finished product. I was lucky enough to get help from CVM Communications with filming but the video guy was out of town so our photographer, Tim, stepped in, which is why I was responsible for editing. I was very appreciative for Tim's help because, it turns out, I am not the best in front of the camera...

This month’s College of Veterinary Medicine Graduate Student Association Meeting had a very interesting guest speaker. Dr. Henry Musoma of the Mays Business School spoke to us about the Journey from Pathetic to Prophetic and, basically, how to be a good person, particularly in academic research. His speech took up almost the entire meeting time and was incredibly entertaining and meaningful.
Without rehashing his entire speech, he made some good points that I wanted to share:
He ended his speech by saying, “Don’t be impressed by me, be inspired by me.” I think the humility in this statement speaks wonders.
