Different Stories…Same Dreams…

It has been a week since we arrived in Washington D.C. When we came here, we were all excited and nervous at the same time, we have all been dreaming to becoming part of this fellowship and now it has been realized and we are all having a great time.

My co-pro fellows and I became friends instantly. We began sharing stories on how we actually got into this program and I realized that we all have different stories…and all stories are unique and inspiring…

If you remembered what I wrote last week, you can recall this year was not my first time to apply and I was only chosen as an alternate fellow last year that left me a bit heart broken but that didn’t stop me for trying again….After talking to my new found friends, I learned that most of them also apllied many times before finally getting in and I was not the only one who became an alternate…

One of them applied since 2015, the other got a wrong email because he has the same name with the selected fellow and some alternates can also get lucky because of some unexpected circumstances of the chosen fellow. These stories are proof that we all worked hard for this dream and we also have our own perfect timing.

We may have different experiences before we got this far… but we do have one thing in common, we arrived here because we have the same dream of becoming a professional fellow under the environment and sustainable development cohort and we all want to make a difference in our community and in our organization.
