Kirby instilled a self-confidence in me that has been hugely important in undergrad, grad and the workplace. Having close working relationships with Kirby faculty helped me feel comfortable developing relationships with professors in college, and gave me the confidence to hold my own with "the adults in the room" in a variety of contexts.
