My experiences at the International Association of Research Scholars & Administrators (IARSA) provided a strong example of quality research as I progressed through my post-graduate work. I consider the Association leadership a significant contributor to my personal success in completing my dissertation and presenting my research. What I appreciate most about being a member of IARSA are the connections and deep personal relationships I made with caring and dedicated professionals. Thank you IARSA and keep up the great work and contribution to the field and to others.
