Caitlin Kirby defends her dissertation wearing a skirt made of rejection letters

Caitlin Kirby, a graduate student in earth and environment science at Michigan State University, defended her doctoral dissertation while wearing a skirt she had made from 17 rejection letters she had received in the course of her studies.
“The whole process of revisiting those old letters and making that skirt sort of reminded me that you have to apply to a lot of things to succeed,” she said. “A natural part of the process is to get rejected along the way.” ... "I just searched for 'unfortunately' and 'we regret to inform you' in my email"
