“I was young and care-free”, she said as she spoke to The Allium, “and, although I knew it wouldn’t last forever, but I just wish that I could go back just for a few minutes”, she said.

McRell, who started grad school on January 2nd, 2015, had a happy childhood, she confided and her time as an undergrad was simply a joy.

“I’ve always been a happy person”, said McRell, “but this is sucking the lifeblood from me, all happiness, all joy has been extinguished”.
