The [HUMRTS 101] intro class hooked me, and the minor is one of my favorite things I've done at Stanford! Being a human rights minor helped me start to look at problems in the world at the system level. Instead of reading a news article and feeling emotion based on the event being reported on, the minor taught me to take a step back and examine the situation holistically and understand the biases and perspectives being elevated in the narrative beyond the surface level.
