Because of Fontbonne I will be able to design curriculum for both the deaf and hearing communities within the Instructional Design & Technology industry as well as provide exceptional online training. I’m so very humbled to be involved in this field because it aligns with skills I already have and are currently enhancing those skills to a whole new level!
I’m thankful to Fontbonne for sending me that “Grad Preview” night post card and me being obedient and open to coming that night. That was a great decision!! #FBUGriffinNation
Fontbonne inspires me to excel in all that I do. It inspired to me to well in my academics. I worked hard in my courses, got good grades , and got accepted into ODK for being in the top third of my class. It also helped me to get internships. I was encouraged to search for a career very early, and I am really glad I planned ahead. Right now I have an internship with life work systems and next month I will find out if I received another internship for this summer. People at Fontbonne encouraged me to give a good impression to potential employers and writing a resume.
Fontbonne also inspired me to get involved on campus. I have met so many amazing people and enjoy seeing them everyday. I am part of the activities board, student government, enactus, and I am also leading the metanoia retreat. (You should all attend). I do not simply go to class and go home, I interact with people on a daily basis. I have become a well rounded person at Fontbonne.
“Because of Fontbonne I will…” This is the statement from the We Are Griffin Nation website that stuck out to me the most. Where do I start? There are so many things from my Fontbonne experience that are applicable to this statement. I have had so many experiences here that have changed my perspective and made me think in new, exciting ways. Since I have been here I have learned so much about myself and others, and have grown as a person in so many ways. One statement just would not be enough. Because of Fontbonne I will graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary to propel myself further into my chosen career. Because of Fontbonne I will have countless connections with people who have shaped me and changed my life in ways that I could have never imagined. Because of Fontbonne I now have the confidence and motivation to strive for things that I want, even if they scare me. But mostly, because of Fontbonne, I am a better, smarter,kinder, and more confident person than I was when I first got here.
What does being a part of Griffin Nation mean to you?
Have a great week!
Hello all!! Welcome back once again, Griffin Nation! This week I’m talking about what Fontbonne means to me. I’m proud to be a Griffin because of how many leadership opportunities it has given me. Fontbonne continues to impress me with all of the new things that I can get involved in. When I first came to campus, I was a little timid to get myself involved because I had no clue of what any of this entailed. But now I feel like I have a never-ending list of organizations to say that I’m apart of. I can also say doors keep opening in my benefit for new leadership opportunities, and I will forever be grateful for this.
Fontbonne also inspires me to be the leader that I never knew that I could be. I am much more involved in college than I ever was in high school, and I never would have expected that because I felt like I was shy and closed people off. But I learned and grew to realize that leadership is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I have been a member of FAB’s (Fontbonne Activities Board) executive board, a member of Fontbonne’s Dance Marathon’s Morale Committee, and a WING leader this past orientation season. I loved being a part of all of these different leadership opportunities because they have all helped me grow in the areas that I needed the most improvement with to be a better leader. I wouldn’t change my leadership experience for anything and it can only get better from here!
Thank you all again, and see you next week!
