Tonight, my program was at Brandeis University. As I travel to various campuses, I get to meet student leaders from all walks of life. Rarely have I met so many students who were proud of their university and excited to be part of a special process for the incoming students. This team of leaders who I got to have dinner with was amazing. Every word was positive. Their faces lit up as they talked about their campus. I was already looking forward to the speech. Now I couldn’t wait.
We entered the Theatre. The setting was perfect. The room sat 800 and you felt like it was 200 (very cozy and intimate which is exactly what I like). When we got started, the students got rolling. The crowd asked lots of questions throughout the progam ("what if . . ."; "what about . . ."; "my boyfriend . . ."). All of the questions were genuine students looking for answers. We addressed each question as the night progressed. The students were engaged and thinking. Their response at the end was overwhelming!
A special thanks goes out to Nikki and her fellow student leaders. Wow! You all have a phenomenal presences about you. Thanks for spreading your positive energy to others.
