I had a great time meeting new people and sharing my experiences at the Global Change-makers Networking Event on Thursday, April 13th. The event which was co-hosted by Atlas Corps and the Hilton Prize Coalition brought together over 50 young professionals for a few hours of networking. I had the privilege of delivering brief remarks at the event and I am truly appreciative of the support of my peers. In case you missed it, my remarks have been added below.

From Jamaica to Virginia: Initial thoughts about my Atlas Corps Journey

Excited, relieved, eager, anxious—those were some of the feelings I experienced when I found out I was selected as an Atlas Corps Fellow to serve at the Council on Foundations.

Embrace the Journey

 

journey called life

On January 15, 2017 I boarded a flight destined for Washington D.C. to begin a new chapter on this journey called life. This chapter titled- My Atlas Corps journey will undoubtedly have its hurdles but most importantly I am excited by the opportunities and inspirations I will have along the way.

As a young girl growing up in Kingston, Jamaica I came to the realization that there is no need to be perfect to inspire other but rather, let people be inspired by how you deal with your imperfections. So, throughout life I have chosen (yes it does take conscious effort) to be inspired by the finer, more organic details in life. Therefore, on this journey I look forward to the moments within the moments that will form lasting imprints and be later recalled as precious memories.
