I'm a day late with my Journey Forward post this week...ooops! It's been a busy one at the office and my roommate's sweet friend and her adorable 3 year old daughter are staying with us. I've been spending my free time visting with them (and playing my little ponies) instead of blogging.
This week's topic is to write about your role model or the spokesperson for your word. My word is grow and I can't think of anyone better than Professor Clark to serve as a role model for it.
More importantly, she encouraged us all to grow from the lessons we learned in her classroom. When a small group on students in our class on human trafficking wanted to start an anti-trafficking advocacy group on campus, she was our biggest cheerleader and our biggest resource. She would help us line up speakers, fine tune ideas, and organize events to fundraise for local shelters, but she never tried to take over and the final products were always our own. She truly taught us how to grow into leaders and overcome new and challenging tasks.
