|The Triple S - Steffen, Sheri, Sabrina|
I will miss working everyday with Sabrina and Steffen - we did a lot of work but we had a lot of fun too!! They were so good to me when I was out sick for a couple days too. I think we have all learned that it's okay to go beyond our comfort zones. We all learned that we have a lot to offer, no matter what job or adventure we embark on next.
The Genesis Foundation team has been wonderful to work with - every person has so much passion and love for what they do. They are making a positive impact and improving the lives of thousands of Colombian children every day. Not too many people can say that about their jobs!! It was infectious to be around them!!
I personally have gained a lot from this experience. I have more confidence in my abilities to apply my knowledge and skills in other areas and I know that I can to do that now. I also learned that having more years of life experience is a good thing!! Coming into the sabbatical I was afraid that I might not be "young enough" to keep up, but what I realize now is that my life experiences helps me to related to others and gives me the ability to interpret concepts or ideas to terms that make sense to others.
I hope to follow the Genesis Foundation and the wonderful work they are doing for many years to come!!
A special thank you to SAP for making the Social Sabbatical a reality for me. And, also, a special thank you to my husband, Mike, who always supports me in whatever I venture to do.
