A Note From Jessica Baar
Posted on 07/19/2011 @ 10:59 AM
On Sunday, after a fun afternoon of going to The Natural History Museum, I returned to GW to listen to a guest speaker, Steven Culbertson. Steve is currently the CEO of Youth Service America or YSA. Steve's speech to us is hard to describe, but if I had to, I would use the words: amazing, inspiring, and motivational. He talked to us about how each one of us can make an IMPACT on the world, all while being teenagers. He taught us that we are not the leaders of tomorrow, but of TODAY. I was inspired to create a huge fundraiser idea to bring back to my BBG and AZA Chapter.
Transitioning into Monday, we went to the Holocaust Museuem. Coming from someone who has been before, it was totally memorable.
Afterwards, my service site (Metro TeenAIDS) got to go back to the center to spend some time with local teens from the area. We planned a program that was a huge hit. I can't wait to go back!
DC is great and we all can't wait to lobby on Thursday. That's all for now- until next time!
