This past week, the California Dietetic Association held its convention in Pasadena, California, just a stone's throw from my home. As a member in good standing, I was able to get one of the coveted volunteer positions for students, which means free attendance.
I learned a lot, as my duties included assisting the speakers during three lectures spanning over 4 hours. But what I remember most is spending time with old friends and meeting new ones. It was great to see all my former co-students who have gone on to other endeavors.
In the process, I made new friends as well. May it be the will of G-d that this is only the beginning.
