Forgiveness calls for grace, compassion, and is truly a gift. It is a gift not only for the person receiving forgiveness, but also for the one offering it. Forgiveness speaks to the heart of others – Cor Ad Cor Loquitur – “Heart Speaks to Heart” – the motto of Edgewood College. It allows us to remain true to our Dominican Mission as we, a community of learners, commit to building a just and compassionate world. Forgiveness creates an atmosphere of peace and growth and is limitless. There is no limit to the number of times we have the opportunity to forgive one another and forgive ourselves. We must be prepared to forgive, as it releases the burden of a heavy heart and creates a place where one can be free, let go, heal, and continue one’s journey on a lifelong search for truth.

From Classes to Careers
My mentors and advisors have been helpful in managing my success. Last summer I did scientific research in Boston for the Novartis Scientific Summer Scholar Program. They select top-tier students from around the world, and I was one of the lucky people selected.
