“The Dubin Fellows are my family away from home. Every week we met as a group to learn and develop our growing aspirations intimate sessions with leaders who overcame adversity, workshops on teaming, and weekend skillbuilding activities are all highlights of my time at HKS. I will miss frantically checking the CPL events announcements each morning and feeling energized by the possibility of encountering a new idea, insight, or mentor to learn from."
