So my international organization this semester has been a little unconventional, because it is just getting off the ground.
The Global Engagement Fellowship group is rapidly growing as new members for the third ever group are being selected. As the group grows, it gets harder and harder to feel connected in the organization and even just to meet everyone. Aside from a biannual meeting, we really don’t see each other all at once. That is, until now! To improve the fellowship and promote more communication within the group, many new positions have been made (social media coordinators, internal mentor groups, etc.) I am going to be a mentor once it’s fully up and running, but for now it’s just in the planning stages. My role is complicated by the fact that I’ll be gone for the fall semester, but luckily, since the program is basically built around that, I am still able to be a part of it. I am excited to get to know more GEFs and to help people through situations that I had difficulty with when I was in their shoes.
