Advocate: How do you feel about Montgomery College?

“It’s not like a specialized school. You can go to Johns Hopkins or…North Washington, they have their signature schools for Health. But here, there’s so many more options, varieties…You can [be] anybody, you can find art majors, you can find health majors, you can find engineering majors. The best thing is, no one is selfish and says, “OK, I’m doing health, you’re doing another subject, you can’t benefit me.” Everybody comes together, one subject will help another in some shape or form.”

 

Advocate: Do you have an example of how you’ve found that to be true?
