As I’ve written about before, I am the Co-Chair for the Student Arts and Speakers Series. All year, we have brought arts and culture to Bryant. We had our last speaker of the semester last week, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. He spoke boldly about climate change and the drastic need to do something about it before it’s too late.
After his monumental speech, I chatted with him briefly at the Meet and Greet. RFK Jr. gave me career advice and shared some wisdom about doing things you are passionate about. I won’t lie, it was the first time I felt really starstruck when meeting a speaker. The Kennedy’s are American royalty, after all.
While we still have two events left for the year, being Co-Chair for such a special group has been an extreme privilege. I have gotten to meet some truly brilliant people, and I don’t mean just the extraordinary speakers we’ve hosted. My Co-Chair, Amreen, and our advisory, Judy, have taught me valuable lessons throughout our time together. It wasn’t all easy and definitely more work than I realized, but I wouldn’t change a thing about the experience. Bryant has allowed me to enhance the cultural value of our campus and I am eternally grateful.
Live in love,
