Student parents are key to our post-pandemic recovery

  Student parents are key to our post-pandemic recovery Student parents enrich the classroom by connecting theory and data with lived experience in tangible ways. In fact, according to my survey of student parents at Fresno State, over 80 percent of respondents reported that being a parent made them a better student. Supporting student parents improves racial equity and promotes educational justice.When Ashley looks to the future she sees herself working on a college campus where she can advocate for student parents, like herself. Though Ashley's support system helped her to continue her educational journey, despite the hardships, others may not be as fortunate.

Ashley Judd is back on her feet after shattering her leg in four places during a February hiking accident.The 53-year-old actress, who has been documenting her rehabilitation process on social media, announced on Sunday that she was officially walking on her own again.

"Dear Friends, It is with reverence and quiet awe I offer this update. Today, five months and three weeks after the accident in the Congolese rainforest, I walked again, and in what fashion! I hiked in the #SwissNationalPark," Judd wrote on Instagram alongside a series of videos and photos documenting her progress.

This immaculate preservation not only allowed the team to examine DNA from the sheep, but also the genetic material of salt-loving microbes that grew on the specimen, the team reported in a new study, published July 13 in the journal Biology Letters.

"Stepping in, I felt in my ease, my natural garment of self, at home in my spirit. My leg and foot, worked beautifully," she continued. "I walked up hill on uneven surfaces for an hour confidently and came down carefully and easily. I rested in a meadow on God's fecund earth for hours."

The 35-year-old actress and her 32-year-old beau appeared to be enjoying each other's company as they took a stroll following a romantic dinner at Balthazar.Though they have been romantically linked since 2017, Ashley and Louis have kept their relationship private. Olsen was dressed in a sizable black dress that obscured much of her frame during her date night.She also sported a matching pair of sandals and carried a large leather bag.

Back in February, Judd broke her leg and suffered severe nerve damage after tripping over a fallen tree while researching the Bonobos, an endangered ape species, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The star then underwent an eight-hour surgery at a hospital in South Africa after she was transported by six men in a 55-hour rescue.

As her Sunday post continued, Judd shared that she has "so many people to thank for helping to make my recovery possible."

Reflecting on some of the challenges she's overcome, the actress recalled all of the "grueling and essential physical therapy," which included doing yoga before she was even able to walk.

"I have been loved and understood and helped in my healing. Just look at the last video for comparison, that was where I was just two months ago (always trying to be in nature, when I could barely walk!)" Judd added, referring to a video included in the post that showed her walking gingerly with the use of crutches.

"Many of you have been praying for me, and sending me notes. Thank you. I have felt you. I have especially been held by family and my partner. Peace be with you," she concluded.
