semester of yes

*This post was previously published for the blog, “Rachel Shubin.” It is now Cape May Rachel*

Last semester I decided to have a “semester of yes.” For me, this personally meant I needed to say yes more and take advantage of all that GMU has to offer before I graduated.

  • I attended a Bernie Sanders Town Hall event at GMU
  • I’m a staff member of IV Estate, the student newspaper
  • I got to watch my broadcast journalism professor do a live shot on campus before President Obama’s town hall on gun control

  • I saw Hoda Kotb at GMU
  • I became a contributing writer for Tote Magazine (wrote about #FreeKesha; Underrated TV shows)
  • I attended a Hillary Clinton Rally at GMU

I can’t wait to see what other opportunities I will have a chance to say yes to, this semester.
