QUOTES FROM HANNA
“Enough cannot be said about networking and connections. That’s true with any job; you have to get out there and get yourself known.”
“It was a stepping stone. I met people I needed to meet, and I was employed.”
“You don’t just get to do the job you think you’re hired for. You’re part of a whole team.”
“Having a PhD is a great thing. It’s not a liability at all, I think. It becomes a liability only when you can’t be flexible.”
“There’s all different kinds of teaching. Doing my public programs is one way of teaching the public about their culture.”
