Week 6

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart…”

Colossians 3:23

July 29-August 2

This week was my last week in the office! It was very bittersweet and I can’t believe how many important things I’ve learned this summer. Even though I spent most of my time in the office, I learned useful, simple skills that I will definitely carry into my life as a college student and a young professional. During this week, I helped clean up and reorganize the office and left over materials that we brought back from LC. I also helped a buddy, Mike, write thank you notes to all of the people, companies, and organizations that donated items for LC. I helped him write thank you notes to organizations such as the Predators, Aveda, Hilton, Vineyard Vines, and several others that donated items for the swag bags distributed at LC. Besides learning about how to work in an office and how to collaborate with others in a professional space, I also gained a completely different perspective on Best Buddies. From now on, inclusion will be my first concern in every situation. I’m so thankful that Best Buddies opened my eyes to better understand their mission of acceptance and friendship for all people and I’m excited to see how Best Buddies will continue to change my life, as I will be an officer on the Best Buddies Leadership Team at FRA this year!

This is a picture with my sweet friend, Kara. This picture was taken at the closing ceremony at LC. I can’t wait to impact more special people just like Kara because they deserve love and friendship just as much as anyone else!!
