As a recent college graduate, I can attest to how grateful I feel to have gotten an early start to my career in prevention. I have gained new skills that I will take with me through graduate school and my career, met new friends and colleagues, and had the opportunity to travel and learn in new places. I found the work that I was doing to be personally fulfilling and to be beneficial to our communities, especially the work I was doing on my campus as a peer educator and student leader. Fortunately, I never felt I had to be silent because I was a student rather than a staff member. In fact, the faculty and staff I worked with throughout my college career always encouraged me to speak up when it came to my thoughts, ideas, and experiences as a student. This led to many productive meetings, thoughtful discussions, new ideas, and collaborations.
