Summer 2015

“For me, there is a clear ‘before’ and ‘after’ the fellowship….”

“I have always felt a calling to act and live within the justice world, but the Fellowship provided me with the precious opportunity to play and work until I found my best self. The world as a whole is a brighter place to me now, even in the darkest times – it’s comforting and inspiring to know that I have this community wherever I go, in the tools I was offered and the folks I met. I am endlessly grateful!”
