Ellen Judge-Gonzalez: Keep Calm and Graduate

"It's really important that we connect with one another and reach out for help when we need it, reach out for support when we need it, ask the questions that we don't know or understand...seek out resources. Now is not the time to hold back and try to handle everything on our own, because we're not alone in this."
