Tell us your story in six words: That’s what the UAB campus community was challenged to do for UAB Graduate School’s fifth annual Say It In 6 competition. Participants submitted an image and six words depicting any story they wanted to tell — about their life, their experiences, things they love or have learned. And the submissions were quite inspirational!
