Today I was able to meet with my dissertation chair and present her my PowerPoint dissertation proposal defense which I will present to the rest of my committee on the 3rd of June. She made suggestions which I implemented. I am sharing the pdf version here. PP proposal defense This is a brief introduction to my first 3 chapters. I am anxious to get started researching and writing my last 2 chapters and finish. Chapters 4 and 5 are all but remaining but all in good time. Mindfulness now has demanded patience for me. This has been such as very long 6-year road but I can see the end in sight. I plan to be completely finished by year’s end. I’m grateful for all of those who have impacted my transformation on this journey.
