Finding Mentee

Mentee, Hey there, I promised you this blog post a while ago before you knew who I was, sorry it was a little late! I know your first impression of me was horrible. Meeting you was a wild goose chase for Teddy, Katie, and myself. I’m not sure if I told you when I met…

Adventure is Out There

For my first week of Summer vacation, I got the privilege to spend it with 11 other Central students in Immokalee, Florida. We went on an Alternative Break for the issue of education. Being a future educator, I was thrilled when I got into the break at 7:30 am. From there on out, we had weekly meetings talking…

My Freshman Year: COMPLETE

Freshman year had a bunch of whirlwinds of emotions. I’ve gone through a lot this year, some thing people won’t experience in a lifetime. Starting from the beginning, I moved in with my bestest friends, and we had the awkward uncomfortable roommate talk of “are you okay with having people over after midnight?” and all…

Leadership With a Chance of Potatoes (pt 2)

After we were done with Jalen Rose, we drove to Quicken Loans to have a presentation along with pizza (YAS)! We had a presentation on why we should apply for an internship at Quicken Loans for the upcoming Summer. Everything was amazing, if I weren’t so busy this summer I’d move out to Detroit to…

Leadership with a Chance of Facilitating (pt 1)

Detroit is one of those cities you think of and instantly start talking trash about. You talk about how much poverty Detroit is in, or you talk about the danger of being in a city like Detroit. You think about the crime rate. We all look at Detroit and see the bad things. I fell…

I Mean…Naw……

Leadership puts you through a lot of decision making. You have to decide what’s best for your group as well as yourself, and you have to decide whether or not to step in when participants are working together to resolve a problem. If you ask me, I’d tell you time and time again, leadership depends…

PRE- D

As I prepare to take off, I gather my bags, cram last minute for my exam, and I’m getting hyped up. LAS takes a annual trip to Detroit in the second semester to educate future leaders on the leadership skills we’ve learned this year. In Detroit, poverty is such a big issue. There’s a lot of…

The Happiest Day of the Year

No, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about COMP DAY! I was lucky enough to have my number one choice for my Lead Team for LAS. Ever since I went through it last year, competition day was always something I wanted to be a part of. Whether it be right after I went through…

Mentor and Me

Coming into college I was nervous. I was nervous to live on my own, I was nervous to be taking so many credits my first semester of college, and I was nervous about making friends (even though I have 49 people in my cohort of LAS). Most of all, I was TERRIFIED of moving away from my…

What the CUSS is an Echidna?

I left my parents at the car in the Barnes parking lot and bolted. I ran up to the third floor and walk into room 308 noticing the door decorations all over. “Welcome to Team Echidna, Molly!!” …what in the cuss is an Echidna? Naturally, I ignored everything and went to find my roommate who was… guess where?…
