I would advise any student interested in pursuing faculty-mentored research to talk to your mentor and other mentors about your ideas, and simply dive into it! I have learned so much and had such a diversity of experiences because of my involvement in research, and I could not have experienced these events if I did not dive in with an open mind, despite all my uncertainties and lack of knowledge. I would also advise students to be open minded about projects they are handed or assigned to, but to always keep in mind their own ideas and interests and constantly work on finding a way to pursue, hone, and develop their own original research project. I have learned from research that every question, framed in different ways, can yield more and more information about a field or topic—no matter how thoroughly researched one believes the topic is already. I would also advise a student not to become discouraged by the scope of literature on a particular research topic or question; there is always more to explore. More knowledge provides more perspectives, especially the perspectives of marginalized voices and groups. Constantly reframing and asking the research questions, which have already been asked in different ways, can be a matter of uplifting voices seldom heard.
