Facing your fears as a leader
Sarah Ficko

Fear is one of our primary emotional responses, brought on by a perceived threat. As we become adults, we are less likely to acknowledge or discuss our fears with ourselves or others. However, in a leadership role, we need to address and face our internal fears or it could have consequences for ourselves and the team we are leading. What are your fears? Are you ready to face them?

An Ode to 2014
Hanhmi Huynh

"Oh the places you will go!", the things you will see,
That's what I thought, when I got my degree.
Two-zero-oh-four, my graduating year.
But wait a minute, where do I go from here?
Venture into the real world and fend for myself
Or go back to school, perhaps something in health?
"Not all who wander are lost", is that what they say?
Well, I may not be lost, but I still don't know the way.
Though I must admit, I am definitely no poet,
I learned a lot this year, and I feel like somebody should know it...

Connecting the Dots - Ending the Stigma of Loneliness
Han Lee

I love playing connect-the-dots. Everything seems so jumbled and confusing at first, but you connect the dots, you end up with a fantastic picture. You and I are dots. Everyone is a unique dot. But sometimes, it's hard to make those connections. So many people feel lonely, and it might seem crazy to think so, given that there are so many people and potential friends around you. But it's not about how many friends you have, or the number of people in your life. It's the way you feel inside. How can we end this stigma of loneliness?
