Growth to be made along the way.

I am here because I wanted something different from my schools environment/atmosphere a place where I could find something I’m interested in and focus on it and learn about and make a difference through it. A place to challenge my collaboration skills, a get a break from the people at school and be able to work with people who actually want to work on something together and to attempt to make an influence. I don’t know what I want to do here, I have small ideas for topics and issues, and yes some of them stand out from others, but I’m just unsure. I know that there is going to be a lot of growth for me through this program. I know that there will be times when it’s hard, but that’s when we learn the most, and we gain from our struggles and mistakes. I am here because I want to make a change, and make some errors along the way and learn from them. I want to broaden my interests and learning, I want to follow a topic and dig in deep, and learn how to create and do interviews.

    Dear Sasha,
    As a long-time member of BLTN, I’m writing to you from South Carolina to let you know what it means to know that What’s the Story Vermont is meeting at Middlebury and you’re there because you was to make a difference through your participation. Many good wishes for today and this year. Dixie Goswami

  • Sasha,

    Nice to meet you yesterday and I so appreciate what you’ve shared here, particularly that you are unsure of what you will end up doing. Being unsure is both scary and an opportunity. Try to avoid deciding too soon and explore lots of ideas until you zero in on a broad topic that deeply interests you and a group that is going in the direction you want to go.

    cheers,

  • Sasha,

    It was nice to meet you at the Kickoff Day last week. It sounds like you are in WtS for the right reasons. You are here to work with others who want to work towards a shared goal, and other students are here for that reason as well. You are here for something that will challenge your collaboration skills, and there will certainly be moments this year that challenge those skills. However, despite the hardships that await you on this journey, in the end, you are here to make a difference, and know that whatever topic you eventually settle on, you will make a difference.

    Erik
