That June, I was announced as the recipient of the annual Heath Ledger Scholarship, a platform that I was able to jump off and land among a team of people with whom I enjoy working to this day. They provide incredible opportunities and introduce me to decision makers. I also now get invitations to events that let me rub shoulders with many people that I admired from afar for so long. More than that, the scholarship provides a valuable leg-up into…
