When Carmen Pestano ’17 presented the paper, “Crises and their Impact on the Governance of Immigration” at the European Union Studies Association (EUSA) 15th Biennial Conference this spring, she exhibited the poise and expertise of any other seasoned scholar on the program.
No one would have guessed she needed a little push from her professor and co-author Dr. Carolyn Dudek, chair of the Political Science Department.
“Originally Dr. Dudek said she would present half the paper and I would give half,” Pestano said. “But just a few days before she told me, ‘no, Carmen, you will present the whole thing.’ She has always encouraged me to do my very best, even when I think it’s too much for me. ‘Carmen, I know you can do it,’ she always says. She’s been a great friend and adviser to me.”
