The Power of Opportunity?

Peter Nicholson

Creating the Conveyor
Experiential knowledge is key. My transition from college to career was mediated by a year-long internship. Equipped with a (barely) livable salary, access to a large professional network, and a fair amount of responsibility, I flourished. This week, Foresight’s summer interns arrive. Their focus and curiosity injects the studio with an energy that can be lagging after a long winter. Mentoring them often requires reconsidering my assumptions, and understanding different mindsets. Done right, we all get something from the exchange. Two of our students are past alumni of the summer high school program I teach. Fostering leaders who are smarter, wiser and more knowledgeable than I was at their age is the objective of these educational sessions. This is progress. Their potential impact will likely outsize anything else I might work on. Empowering them with experience-derived insight is crucial to their development, and ours.
