In Dr. Swada's words:  “Being legally blind, I have had to overcome many challenges to become successful as a student and in my professional career. Throughout my journey at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I was fortunate to have the guidance and support of faculty and advisors to help me overcome any hurdles that have stood between me and the ability to reach my full potential. My time at UIUC’s Food Science and Human Nutrition Department provided me with a firm foundation in the sciences, giving me a platform in which I could pivot into almost any career! I use my vast knowledge base provided by this program each day as I advise and teach hundreds of students at Michigan State University.”
