This weekend at the Urban Retreat was SOOOO fun! I really didn't expect to enjoy my self this much. I gained so many skills this weekend and got to see a lot of great monuments. My SWARM Council is awesome, I could not have imagined a better group of people to travel with.
It was very humbling to meet with so many other people from around the world with different backgrounds. Everyone was very nice and genuine. We learned about " salary negotiating" in one of the sessions. I cannot wait to teach this skill to my AKPsi brothers when I get back to SC State. It lets me know that the money and time spent at Urban Retreat was not in vain because these skills can be used everywhere and not just in my advocacy work.
I definitely have benefited from this weekend. And most of all I know that my dear friend Tim was watching us with a smiling face the whole time.
