I think you should go to the Granger Leadership Academy! 

Are you thinking about going to the Granger Leadership Academy? Or did you find this post by accident? I think you need to think about going either way.

For those of you who don’t know…

The Granger Leadership Academy is a leadership conference planned and hosted by The Harry Potter Alliance. It’s really awesome because it draws on building leadership skills through different fandoms.

It is an amazing experience…

When I went to the 2016 GLA in Warwick, RI, USA (close to Providence), it was an amazing experience. I met so many amazing people, many of whom I am proud to call my friends now. I went to a bunch of though provoking and fun seminars about planning events, about social causes, about being engaged and engaging others. I’ll be honest; I don’t really go to a lot of conferences, or any for that matter. GLA is basically the most amazing introduction to a conference that I could possibly ask for.

And don’t worry about age…

I think most of us were 18 to about 35, with the average obviously being somewhere in the middle, but there was a group of kids about 12-15 years old and a group of us who were about 40. I’ve been asked by a few people if age matters; it doesn’t. If you want to go, then go; you will love it.

I wish I could be going to St. Louis…

And I wish I stopped pronouncing it like St. Lewey and say it like St. Lewis. (it could also be said like Lou-Ease). How are there so many ways to say 1 name? GLA is so amazing that, yes, I’d go again, but alas I recently got a job and I can only take so much time off.

 

St. Louis is supposed to be really fun. If I was going, I’d definitely book an extra few days and plan to do some sight seeing while I was there. Also, I heard some people I know talking about events that might revolve around going to this really fabulous museum in St. Louis. You should check out the schedule that is on the website.  I think GLA is going to be so amazing.

So… Check it out? Rest assure that I thought it was really amazing.

Enjoying Providence, RI — Brown University, RISD Museum and The Duck & Bunny

A new trend of mine is to have 1 or 2 days of free time in a city and quickly do some research on places I’d like to see and do in that city. It’s so much fun to pick out … Continue reading
