I have always wanted to be a nonprofit consultant, so this experience served as the perfect opportunity to take what I have learned in my MS in Nonprofit Management program at Northeastern and put it into practice with an organization. I learned the value of listening to leaders of organizations and understanding what is most important to them for their mission and how I can be a part of the solution to their challenges. I learned that in order to change or influence behavior surrounding differences in belief systems, I need to spend a lot of time understanding where they are coming from and why they believe what they do.
