Logan’s advice for current students is to never give up. Having gone through her own personal crises and challenges, she tells us that “These things happen, and that they are opportunities for growth and not personal failures. Take advantage of your opportunities and build your network while you are a student. Not only will it help you when you are seeking employment as a graduate, but those relationships are invaluable in your career and life.”
