Week 4 Uitenbroek
There was one section of my conversations with Michael that deserved a little digging yet. He told me the story of his English 318 class, or Writing for the Sciences, which included reading the book Hiroshima. Michael told me that brought back many memories from his military experiences. After hearing that, I knew I had to talk to the professor. Today, I met with Dr. Vivian Foss along with Michael to talk further about the class. Dr. Foss said she admired how well Michael hid his issues, and how he brought it out in his papers instead. “My favorite student in the class.” She said she “did not realize the depth of Michael’s stress until a few weeks ago.” Dr. Foss mentioned that her experience with Michael was comparable to another student who went through Desert Storm. She was happy to talk to Michael again and was happy to help him whenever he needed.
