Bridget Bush is an academic in every sense of the word. I excelled in my undergraduate studies, and I have remained at George Mason University, where I am now pursuing my MA in Communication, which will then be followed by the pursuance of a PhD in Communication.
My dream is to remain at this University as a Professor of Communication, as well as continuing to contribute to the amazing Communication research being performed at George Mason University.
