[The NMC program] opened my chances for opportunities I thought I would never have. I mean that with the deepest sincerities.
[The NMC program] connected me to other physicists and afforded me [the] visibility of our diversity. Physicists get typecast into a certain demeanor, look, and nature, but NMC brought together various physicists of all types. It bolstered the self-confidence that I had knowing that we are unified by the pursuit of answers, but otherwise diverse.
