DENVER, '14 & '15

“I was given the opportunity to help lead with the GT admin team in ways that one could only imagine. I was only successful because of the immense support of my co-workers and peers. As an alumni and employee of the school, I was in position to assist my peers with whatever it was they needed: making copies, fixing jams, grabbing supplies, coordinating with school staff to make sure our program operated at 100%. I loved every second of it, and I want to continue to learn how to balance both helping others and being the best I can be for our scholars and my teammates.”
