I really enjoyed my time at the Symposium today. The showcase presentation that was the most impactful for me was the Spanish class that showed us videos of their individual community service projects regarding the Spanish speaking community in D.C. One girl showed us a video of her interviewing two older women in their apartment, and it was really nice to see them interacting with the younger generation of Spanish speakers. I attended the business discussion at the Symposium, where two senior GW students talked about their startup non-profit companies. Here, I learned about the journey to creating an idea and turning it into a potential profit raising organization that works to help others.
This was a great experience! Loved working directly with students.
