Blake 💗 Global Ambassador Leadership Summit @ Harvard University
(Proud mama) Blake was nominated by her 9th Grade English teacher as an “Ambassador Leader” and had the choice of either attending Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins or UCLA for a week to participate in a Global Ambassador Leadership Summit. Blake chose Harvard University. Not only did she have the time of her life in her own dorm room at Harvard Law School, she was able to attend with her very dear friend Grant Pinkos from NY in the same program, someone she has known since she was a baby. There were 200 kids from around the world who participated. She felt a particular connection to kids from South Africa; she had so much fun that she wanted to stay the whole summer with her new friends. That one week at Harvard provided a priceless education in connection, laughter, and working towards making the world a better place. Love my little girl ❤️
Blake’s Take Away
My favorite part about the summit was getting to hear from the speaker Sunjay Nath. He told us stories that have impacted me tremendously. Stories about peer pressure and how only you can control your actions. He also taught us that to be a leader, you must stand when everyone is sitting.
