Finding Leads and So Many Speakers!

On day four of George Mason, we started off pairing up with someone and creating an imaginary front page of The Washington Post! We then watched a slideshow presented by Carol Guzy. I’d like to take a moment to point out that Carol Guzy seems a very despondent, broken person- which she is, given all she’s seen. The slideshow covered everything from the destruction to the Berlin Wall, to 9/11, to the civil war and earthquake in Haiti, to animals effected by Hurricane Katrina. There was not a dry eye in the room. We then listened to the Dean of Admissions, Amy Takayama-Perez, and decided that George Mason just might be the college for me. Next, we listened to a hilarious speaker named Kevin McCarthy, who was simply hilarious. Then, we wrapped up pur cover of The Washington Post, and then everyone listened to their own individual speaker. I chose Raquel DeSouza, who just recently graduated from George Mason University. We ended the day by a meeting with a reporter from The Rolling Stones named Charles Bramesco. The conference is slowly winding down to an end, with only two days left. I have definitely enjoyed this unique experience!
