Academia Doesn’t Define You

Academia is extremely important. However, I see a lot of my friends and colleagues get really stressed based on how an institution perceives them.

We all try really hard to finish that paper, that test, that assignment, or project. And then at the end of each said task, we all receive a grade for our work. Let me make this clear, these grades are a written letter of someone else’s opinion. Now, their opinion matters, a lot of my professors have PhDs and are extremely intelligent, but when we get that grade of that is really low we weigh it against ourselves.

I have done this throughout my entire time in academia. You are more than just a grade.
