"One of my personal goals has long been to expand my empathetic thinking and global perspective.  Anthropology and ethnographic studies continue to provide me with tools to analyze and understand the lived realities of others from an empathetic and open viewpoint.  The skill set  that I have acquired through my studies in Baruch’s Department of Sociology & Anthropology  regularly shape my opinion and behavior in the corporate world, in academic pursuits, and in everyday life.  Most importantly, the theory and applications of anthropology have empowered my sense of curiosity, empathy, and cultural understanding --and I’m forever grateful for this timeless gift."
