Two months ago, I walked into a room of people buzzing with chatter and exploding with ideas. I was nervous, excited, and mostly intimidated. I didn’t know how to answer the questions that I was being asked. I didn’t know who was there to interview me and who else was being interviewed or if the person sitting next to me had a ‘better’ idea than I had.
I felt completely out of my league- Why was I sitting in this room with established entrepreneurs and future success stories when all I had was an idea?
I’d like to say I realized it then and there, but it’s a taken a few weeks to realize that I am a PresenTense fellow because I believe in creating social change. Each seminar, meeting, and milestone so far has taught me that it’s my passion, my idea, and my venture that will create a difference in society. Each passing week has also revealed that each fellow is at a different point in pursuing social change- some are able to talk about their ventures flawlessly, and some are still working their venture out.
