My Leadership Experience

The Lipman Fellowship has been among the most rewarding and enriching growth experiences I’ve had so far at grad school. I’ve made friends that will last a lifetime, and learned tangible and intangible skills that will no doubt prove invaluable down the road. Thanks to Wharton Leadership for giving me a shot!
