How did you first connect with the Reagan Education Team at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute?
I worked as an intern for the Annenberg Presidential Learning Center during the spring of 2014. Specifically, I was asked to research KAL 007, an incident in which the Soviet Union shot down a Korean Airlines civilian plane. My colleague and I examined hundreds of documents in the archives located at Reagan Library, and compiled a comprehensive document featuring chronology of events and characters involved. Lastly we presented our research to the Reagan Foundation Executive Team. The project was the first step in the development of a second scenario, KAL 007, to be featured at the Discovery Center. I truly enjoyed this learning experience and the opportunity to examine primary documents, a true insight into President Reagan’s life.
If you had to choose one word to describe leadership what would it be?
What advice would you offer to someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
The advice I would offer to someone wanting to follow in my footsteps is cultivate and exemplify a strong work ethic. Specifically, treat every task, big or small, with the same seriousness, always striving to complete it to the best of your ability. Also, I think it is very important to act with integrity, to always be honest, and admit your mistakes.
