Student Showcase and Panel

Friday, Deptember 15

At the Student Showcase, BLI Fellows had an opportunity to present their projects to the entire BLI community. From Capstone projects to Leadership Lab projects, our students dazzled the crowd with their innovative and impactful work. 

"It was a pleasure to answer questions and talk about my experience in a community that has contributed so much to my professional and personal growth." Adarash Mishra (Mish)

Our Student Panel featured 4 BLI Fellows from a range of BLI programs. They answered questions from a moderator and from the audience, sharing their views on leadership and discussing their experiences within BLI.

"I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the student panel during BLI's 10 year anniversary! I was grateful for the opportunity to answer questions from BLI founders and share my experiences/involvement with the organization over the past 2 years. I was able to articulate the impacts that the BLI has had on me both professionally and personally in becoming a more effective leader." Kate Marciniak

"The Student showcase was an amazing opportunity to see all of the great work that my peers are doing in BLI. I often hear about the other great projects going on but rarely get to hear about it from students first hand. It was great to hear from fellow students, alumni, and donors during lunch to have many different perspectives about BLI and where it is headed in the future." Rae Oleshensky
