Yesterday was my first time attending the annual Husky Leadership Conference at Bloomsburg University. I wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out (especially since I had got four hours of sleep) but I am really glad I attended. There were several workshops and alumni panels which provided great insight for student leaders in addition to a keynote speaker. The keynote speaker was Ms. Tracy Nilles a ’90 alumni and Vice President for the United Way Worldwide. Her presentation was great but there was one thing in particular that really resonated with me. When explaining how she overcame adversity in her life she said this: “ten percent is the situation and ninety percent is how you react”. This really a powerful message because it basically says that it doesn’t matter what happens to us in life it is how we handle it.
