What Your DC Program Manager Hopes You've Learned this Summer....
What it means to be a public servant
...and what some careers in public service might look like!
Service isn't always easy....
How Far a Buckeye Can Go!
...hopefully you've been inspired by the incredible alumni base in Washington, and know that you too can go as far as the White House. You too can go as far as VP of Policy at a nationally-know nonprofit. You too can be in a significant leadership position at a government agency. You too can be president of your local Ohio State Alumni Association. You too can be a Congressman or Congresswoman. You too can pay it forward one day, when you are in a position to do so.
How To Network
...and knowing how to maintain a professional network.
The Power of Paying it Forward
...and realizing that WAIP would not be the program that it is without the generosity of alumni and friends doing just that- paying it forward.
The importance of going out of your comfort zone
...sharing the above to point out that I still go out of my comfort zone (introducing the Dean at the Secretary Mattis event really pushed me!), but I can tell you it's the only way you will learn, grow and charge forward to the new and improved version of yourself!
You are part of Senator Glenn's Legacy
Senator Glenn said: "To me, there is no greater calling, If I can inspire young people to dedicate themselves to the good of mankind, I've accomplished something."
You are part of his incredible legacy. You are part of his vision.
And to Laugh at Yourself and Have Fun
...life is too short not to.
It's been a fantastic summer- I cannot wait for our close-out BBQ.
