Kahla Vise has accepted a position on the Operations Team for HOBY 2014. Kahla attended HOBY Maine in 2010 as an ambassador from Boothbay Region High School and as a Junior Facilitator in 2012. She is currently a sophomore at Bowdoin College.
When asked why she wanted to return to volunteer at HOBY Maine she said: "When I was a sophomore, HOBY instilled in me leadership skills, helped me come out of my shell a little, and also showed me why volunteering was so important. Last year, I was a junior facilitator, and got to see firsthand how the HOBY seminar can rock other high school sophomores' world and really help to bridge connections between people that don't even know each other Friday, but are best friends by the end of the weekend! This year, I want to come back again (this time, working behind the scenes) to make an even better experience for everyone participating."
Her favorite quote is: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?", Marianne Williamson (originally from Akeelah and the Bee movie)
Please join us in welcoming Kahla to the HOBY 2014 team!
