What was your favorite thing about the MCN Fellowship?

My favorite thing about MCN is that the ability to get monitorship and feedback at a level not found currently at a university. This includes sharing the problems and solutions that trouble many student organizations but also getting professional mentorship and advice to ensure that one can guide the mission of the organization as best as possible.

Never give up. Don’t let anyone stop you and you’re never to young to start and follow your dreams.
