Rauncie Ryan (Fall 2010 & Now)

I am just going to tell you right now - that Rauncie’s story is life changing not only for her, but for anyone who reads it. 

I am not even going to spill any of the details as you need to read it as she wrote it in her own words. 

All I can say is WOW and a heartfelt congratulations to Rauncie on choosing to make the changes in her life that she always wanted and the courage to follow through. 

Thank you Rauncie - for sharing your story with the RIT community.

Very inspirational read

I really enjoyed that article and I can relate. Currently, I am too young to take the same step but I have been researching for ways to gain the same transformation.
