The best part of been a Fellow is about the relationships built. Relationships that will surpass the time frame of the Fellowship.

The best part of the Fellowship is about the network of Fellows. It is about hanging out with people I never knew and discovering that we have lots of friends in common. It is about visiting Turkey, Nepal, Mexico or Colombia and not having to worry about where to lay my head, or India and knowing I will be well fed or Egypt knowing I have my back covered or Uganda or Zimbabwe where a family welcome awaits me.

It is about collaborating with World Non-profit leaders to make change happen. It is about you and me and the generations that will benefit from our relationship.

It is not about whom I have known the longest, but about who came, stayed and changed my life. It is about leaving people better than you met them.

The best part of the Fellowship is about you and about me, and with each passing day I have a clearer picture of the essence of the Fellowship and I appreciate the impact one man’s vision can have on a person or a generation.

The best part of the Fellowship is about knowing you, my friends.
