Book Title: Encyclopedia of Language Development

Author: Patricia J. Brooks (Editor), Vera Kempe (Editor)

Book Description:

As a first-generation college student, I couldn’t imagine that I would one day pursue graduate study. But when I began an undergraduate research experience at the Infant Language Project at the University of Delaware under the direction of my mentor, Dr. Roberta Golinkoff, the entire trajectory of my life changed. Over the next few years, I completed my own independent project and developed a passion for discovering how children learn about the world around them. Thanks to this undergraduate experience, I pursued a Ph.D. at The Johns Hopkins University. During my time at Penn State, I was thrilled to see my career trajectory came full circle when I co-wrote an entry about language development in this Encyclopedia with the mentor who changed my life.
