For me, this class and our work with CEP has been like taking the road less traveled. It’s like nothing I ever did in college. Sure, I’ve done volunteer work, been active in our church, and the like, but this has been different. Those felt familiar and comfortable. In this, I’ve been forced to crawl outside my comfort zone, which is good for me.
In this class, I’ve learned a great deal about energy, clean and renewable energy, sustainability, environmental protection, and the list goes on. Second, I’ve learned about CEP, GPACE, and many other organizations that do such admirable work. It has been a privilege to contribute (in a small way) toward the efforts of CEP.
Third, I’ve gotten to meet many more new people. Most of whom, I, otherwise, would likely not have met. After spending 16 hours in this class together, I feel that I know everyone better than I know most of my other classmates. The intimate and personal setting of this class is essential to making it work. Plus, Simran is the only person I’ve met that’s been on Oprah.
I also wanted to share my favorite book, which is called “Hope for the Flowers” by Trina Paulus. It is also, in a way, about taking the road less traveled. If you feel like you need to break out of a rut or need some prodding to do something different, check it out. Thanks to Simran, Susan, and my classmates for a great experience.
