She expresses happiness for finally rising above the rank of instructor and is not shy about the fact that she needed the corresponding raise: “It gives me a financial security that I have not had for years.” Her promotion to “Research Assistant with the rank of Assistant Professor,” was a miscommunication according to her colleague J.H.
