How has the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program impacted your personal, professional, or leadership growth?
In my short time with the program, I have already felt the sincere environment of support and encouragement transform the most important parts of my life. Not many scholarship programs allow and actively encourage scholars to wrench at a local bike co-op over the summer: the Robertson staff saw my passion for community and sustainability and let me run wild. That summer experience helped solidify my commitments to uplifting people through self-reliance, thinking holistically, and building spaces of warmth and inclusion.
