I was invited to the University of Washington Multicultural Alumni Partnership Bridging the Gap breakfast to support my friend who was on the committee and was one of the MC’s for the day.
I thought I was coming for breakfast and networking, but I got so much more.
Being part of this experience showed me on one hand how there are so many more challenges in the world that I was lucky to not have to face, and on the other hand, people out there who are committed to spending their time and money to addressing.
It was really great to be a part of that event, and I really hope to participate again next year and to see what the students who received scholarships are capable of.
