Dr. Margaret Mbindyo of Millersville University came to my LL Ed 005 College Reading class last Wednesday evening to speak to the class about her experiences and research on resilience. Her talk was so well-received by the students and many commented on how her presentation resonated with the work we were currently doing on the topic. The most moving part was to hear about her own experiences growing up in Kenya and how much she and her family struggled to help her obtain her education.
She exhorted the students to “Aspire to something!” which I believe they took very much to heart. I believe we all felt very uplifted and encouraged by her story. Students were very appreciative and thankful for her time with us.
Thanks Dr. Mbindyo for sharing your heart, your time, and your expertise with us!
