My fellowship experience:
I experienced so many different facets of what it will take to work in this field in the future. I witnessed the complex negotiations and political maneuvers required to build support and galvanize a campaign; the practical and specific planning and incremental goal-setting necessary to reach such a sweeping aim as a world without nuclear weapons; the dynamics and the diplomacy – and the camaraderie – that comes from working so closely with an intimate group, and the agonizing and repetitive work, of which event planning is a prime example, that must be accomplished to keep all other considerations humming smoothly.
