  1. This video was great! Especially when you talked about how you fell into the field. Bravo to you for going back to grad school. I tried it while working full time and it was so hard. I couldn’t manage. I wanted to go to school for Speech Language Pathology at one point as well. I am really good friends with one from my old school and she loves it.

    1. Thanks for watching all 8 minutes of it! I must say, if you don’t have the privilege to stop working just to pursue graduate school in this field, it makes it EXTREMELY difficulty. But not impossible. Programs are set up so that you basically can’t really work a 9-5. I’ve come across people who have done an online program and have had to had flexible jobs…but realistically with my attention span and online productivity I know that wouldn’t work for me. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Having already understood your field of study, I watched the video for an entirely different reason. I personally wanted to see the amount of passion displayed while providing understanding to others. You did, so I’m sure that will resonate well in your career. They can’t stop you Trace – they can ONLY hope to contain you!

    Okay, let me stop being silly on your blog.

    Hello, I just stumbled upon your blog while searching for pics of Lisa Bonet which led me to your list of girl crushes. I am actually an undergrad SLP2B and when I saw your various post about grad school (i didn’t read them, just scrolled past them) I had a feeling that you were an SLP…idk what it was but I guess we have special radars or something. Anyway…your video has encouraged a lot especially because I am beginning the process of grad school applications and studying for the gre. I am a little worried about not getting into a school by next fall but I am still trusting in God that He will place me in the right program at the right time. Thank you for your encouragement. God bless.

    1. Hi Ashley, Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I know the application process is stressful and full of lots of emotions, when I was looking for encouragement I also found solace in believing that if this was the path I was supposed to take, that God would make a way. Even if it’s not in OUR timing, God still has plans for us. I am now in my fellowship and although it is a lot of work, I feel very prepared. I will be praying for you! You’ve chosen a path that not many venture on, but the reward is great!
