For Cabrini Day I decided to attend the Awards Presentation and Keynote Address because I had already missed the majority of the programs offered that day. I’m glad I did. The speaker, Atif Bostic, spoke about his experience with food insecurity and how his current profession curated from his ability to cultivate his talents and skills to combat a greater issue: food insecurity. I learned that the word stems from the inadequate amount of food needed to survive comfortably.
Along with his talk on Food insecurity, what resonated with me was the passion he had for his work. He spoke about how important time and talent is. Investing time and using your talent to carry out something bigger than you. That it’s important to do things bigger than you.
I believe what most of us here at Cabrini have in common is that we aspire and pursuit change. Whether that be our involvement with clubs, coordinating grassroots organizations, or marching on the soils of D.C. advocating for those who can’t advocate for themselves, we are pioneering individuals with dynamic spirits.
Being at Cabrini inspires me to continue to be more than just a student and use the position I’ve been given to amplify the voice of others and strive to solve issues bigger than myself.
