  1. Hello, my name is Vanessa, and I am currently pursuing my EDD in Education, Leadership and Management. I have been in health care most of my life and changing careers. I have taught and mentored many during this time in healthcare. Unlike most educators who know exactly what it is they will do, I am still at a lost. I would like to pursue cultural diversity in higher education which is very broad.I am currently discouraged. Browsing the site and ran across your post. Anyhelp or suggestions will be helpful. Thanks Vanessa
