Show Me John Legend

That you did Bucknell, that you did. And now I’m going to take something cool and turn it into career advice. I know…I hope I don’t ruin it for you. Last night I attended the John Legend talk and performance and was blown away, much like the rest of the crowd (at least according to Twitter).  I don’t know if it’s just because I work at the CDC or not but I felt like his talk was very much about careers; not being afraid to take risks, following your passion, trying something new, failing and starting over. His talk had […]

Princeton in Africa Fellowships

I’d say that one of the only downsides to this job is learning about all the awesome opportunities out there that I am no longer eligible for. For instance: Princeton in Africa (PiAf), which offers yearlong fellowship opportunities with a variety of organizations that work across the African continent. PiAf Fellows work in service-oriented positions in many different fields, including humanitarian aid, public health, conservation, and education. The more I checked in to this fellowship to write about it the more I wanted to apply. I ran into this inspiring blog, Beyond the Gate, featuring first-person perspectives from recent alums […]
