Growth, It is a life of learning and accomplishing Goals

Hey everyone,
After surviving the first few days in DC and completing the orientation I have realized I have grown already. Life is an interesting thing. It seems once you get settled in one place and grow some roots, just as you feel comfortable and think "I can do this" CHANGE happens. Its all about growing and taking the bull by its horns and hanging on for dear life. I may be the oldest intern here but I still have much to learn. If one says they know it all obviously they know very little. I am humbled to be here and have this opportunity. I have already found friends that I believe will be life long. That's the neat thing, people with disabilities or as I like to put it "Challenges" seem to accept all around them at face value. I truly have felt accepted here and know that this WILL BE a time of amazing opportunities. So fellow interns, lets take it for the ride and lets make sure we ride it well so that we can be champions for the cause.
