Being an Atlas Corps Fellow has been a great experience for me. Having to extend the fellowship is a much more rewarding experience. This is because it has given me the opportunity to evaluate the last one year and identify things I would have done differently. It has also given me the privilege to appreciate the time I have left and try to maximize it by learning new things. I have also become deliberate about transitioning to my phase, so I am not caught unaware when my fellowship ends. It is therefore important to consistently evaluate the time we have left in our fellowship so that we may learn to maximize what’s left.

Here is a short video interview conducted by my good friend and fellow Fellow Bella Goldsteyn where I shared my fifth month Atlas Corps experience.
