Though many alumni should be recognized for their commitment to service, great work does go unnoticed. In choosing recipients of the Alumni Achievement, Sent Forth and Called to Serve Awards, the National Alumni Board strives to recognize influential Cobbers. Please join them in sharing the stories of your fellow Cobbers and honoring this years' award recipients.
Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World
Concordia gave me a global mindset for looking at the world and approaching critical issues. When I think about issues of our time, I don’t just think about how they impact locally or nationally; I think about how they look on the global stage.
One of my biggest passions is people – finding out where their passions and talents lie. For me, BREWing is about helping others become the best people that they can be.
I think being responsibly engaged in the world means embracing different experiences and cultures with an open mind and trying to learn from them. In my own experience working abroad, that engagement happens by fostering relationships with others from all around the globe.
Concordia prepared me to be a leader in my field, to engage the community I live and work in, and to be passionate about everything I do.
To me, BREW is something everyone should do. No matter how small or how insignificant it may seem, great changes can come about just from one person making positive changes to their life or the lives of others.
