Regina Lane, EdD Candidate, Cohort 3
Originally when I was considering a doctoral program, I was looking to transform into a leader with a greater purpose. At Benerd, I found exceptional opportunities leading to new possibilities beyond my imagination. One of the most unique things that I experienced in the EdD Program was selecting the Social Entrepreneurship Path, which pushed me to my greatest potential landing me first place in the 3-Minute Thesis Competition, designing a Mental Health Mobile Application and accepting the invitation of a prized professor to participate in the recent 9th Social Business Day Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, while launching a startup business as a direct  impact of my current research.
