One of the most powerful experiences of my freshman year was being selected for and attending the Clinton Global Initiative University 2016 Conference at the University of California Berkeley. To be accepted, I had to come up with an initiative, mine being to establish an education program for public school teachers on diabetes awareness. I will start my initiate in Shaker Heights and hopefully it will grow from there. The conference was really inspirational, with speakers from the Clinton family to Conan O’Brian to one of the six original freedom fighters. I met with the blind/deaf lawyer Haben Girma, who gave me advice about my initiate. I am so lucky to have attended and I hope to go again next year.
