Through transitioning to virtual engagement, we were able to collaborate with students we normally wouldn’t have had the opportunity to meet because of a lack of sustainable local transit options. Furthermore, we were able to reach tens of thousands of students and adults through virtual events, taking advantage of online tools to create an interactive and collaborative experience.
Many of the skills I have developed, including leadership, organizing, public speaking, teamwork, collaboration, and effective use of technology, have been directly applicable to my work in school projects and internships. I am excited to see how these experiences will apply in college and future jobs. Overall, the most important skill I gained was learning how to use my voice to create real, strategic change in issues I care about.
