Well I can???t believe today is my last day at the office. It has turned out to be a great experience, even though along the way seemed rocky and frustrating. I can honestly look back and really appreciate my time here so much. I have learned more than I could have imagined from the experiences and places that I have been put into. Working in a global office is just a fascinating experience in itself. But having the ability to work hands-on alongside them is even more amazing.

While I look forward to Greece, I will always remember my time at the GBMI and fondly cherish what I learned. It is more than unique to have this opportunity as a college student and I am forever grateful to SMU and CCPA for this chance to learn outside of the classroom.

I have loved getting familiar with the research and fundraising aspects of non-profits: a side so different from Taos and my work there. There is nothing that better sums up the last seven months of work than just incredible. To have the opportunity to work at a local, medical clinic to working in the arts in another state, then moving globally and working with an international non-profit in one of the most amazing cities in the world ??? well, that???s just unfathomable to many of the people I know.

I am so blessed to be here today, and I cherish my opportunities that I have had and the ones to come in the future.
