"My experience with EARS was extremely meaningful and memorable. Through EARS, I became an active listener when interacting with other people. This experience will help me next year when I am working with Teach for America."

Counselor Profile

Masrai Williams

McNair Scholar/HUMEC '15

"Cornell at times can leave you feeling fragmented between your academic interests and your extra-curricular activities and other affiliations. EARS was a place where I could reflect on the whole of my experience and feel supported to live a more compassionate and integrated life. I learned a great deal about myself in the process and I now have skills that have enabled me to be of support to others wherever my life takes me. Being an EARS counselor was one of the most rewarding experiences in my time at Cornell."
