The Park Fellows program has equipped me with the tools I need to continually improve my interpersonal and professional leadership capabilities. It has reinforced an ethos of service and allowed me to put valuable skills into action through community service events, the Park project, and mentorship program. While the rigor of the MBA program has provided me with the technical skills to succeed in my immediate position, the Park program has provided me with a foundation of reflection and vision that will carry me throughout my entire career.
