I have spent this past week in an intensive course with strangers from many different backgrounds and disciplines. I have connected with a number of individuals that I likely would not have met if it were not for this course.
I cannot tell you how incredibly grateful I am for this opportunity.
I walked in completely unsure as to what to expect. I had an open mind, but still wondered what would they tell me that I didn’t already know. Turns out, there was quite a bit, and it was amazing! This course carries on for one more week, and I am looking forward to the rest of it.
Behind the learning, I am looking forward to seeing the others in my cohort. And I am hoping to be able to forge some long term friendships with many of them.
Keeping an open mind is a start to growing as a person. I am enjoying the journey and I hope it never ends.
