I was honored to receive an invitation to the Life Saver’s Conference as a scholarship recipient. While doing research with the Center of Advanced Public Safety under Dr. Randy Smith and Dr. Andrew Graettinger’s guidance, it was my hope to communicate with the people who are doing the similar research like us. Fortunately, this conference gave us a chance to share our research ideas with all other researchers around the world.
The conference itself was one of the best conferences I have ever attended. The valuable information given at the workshops and the opportunity to network and connect with not only students, but professionals in the traffic safety world was amazing. I gained so much knowledge about highway safety from all types of perspectives including the media, government, nonprofits, law, etc. Additionally, I had the opportunity to present my research work as a poster presentation. Most of all, this conference was so much fun! Making new friends, connecting with accomplished individuals, and most importantly, learning so much about traffic safety.
I am extremely honored to have attended this conference. A huge thank you to the Lifesavers Planning Committee and Traffic Safety Scholars program staff. Thank you!
