Katrina, an international student from China won the courage award this past week for overcoming her fear of falling when her group toured the Tepper’s building.
With the support of her group hosts and fellow team members, Katrina was able to push past what felt uncomfortable and scary and reach new heights-literally!
“I have fallen before when I was a child from a ladder. I was shaking the whole time. I could see the trees, the river, and the bridge. It was really amazing. If I had never tried I would have never seen it!” Katrina said.
Katrina’s experience at Tepper’s embodies what we hope students take away from their week in Selma. When we dig into the uncomfortable or the fear then we can reach new ground, new heights, and new experiences. We hope all of the students that visit our program are able embody Katrina’s courage.
