Can you point to the exact moment when you realized, “Aha! Now I get to be in a position to pay it forward”?
I can. It was at the end of my JAWS Emerging Journalist Fellowship in 2014. The fellows and I organized on Twitter to take over the stage of whatever wonderful lunch or wrap-up session was taking place to say thank you to everybody for giving us the opportunity to be part of JAWS and 2014 JAWS’ Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP).
