Congratulations to June Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher, Juliet Cahow!

Juliet conducted her Honors Undergraduate Thesis research in Women’s Studies with Dr. Anne Bubriski. Juliet’s research studies the impacts of gender, racial, and ethnic stereotypes perceived by 30 white, Black, and/or Latinx women (ages 18-22) during their experiences in U.S. public middle schools (grades 6-8). 

When asked about advice she would give students interested in research, she said, “All research is good research! Picking up an array of new skills from a variety of projects was essential to my ability to someday organize a project of my own. You never now what an experience will teach you!”
