Our College Prevention Partnership program has continued to thrive over the years. Several of our CPP members have joined early in their college careers and are now getting ready to graduate. As the GPP Program Coordinator who oversees the CPP program, it is crazy to see how much these students have grown into their own and shown strong leadership. We would like to shine a light on one of our senior CPP members, Mambwe M. Mambwe is a member of the Health Movement CPP organization at Georgia College. In this blog post we will have Mambwe share her experience of not only being a great CPP member but also stepping up and being an awesome student liaison.
“My experience working with the Georgia Prevention Project has been incredible. I have been able to be a part of so many phenomenal programs that have not just built my resume but has also helped me grow in my passion for public health. Having been the CPP student liaison for two years, I have had the privilege of being able to bring many educational and training programs to my campus. My most memorable experience was being able to participate in the Positive Social Norm campaign. Not only was it the hardest program I had to do, but it was the most informative for me to do. It taught me how to be persistent, persuasive, and confident. I am completely grateful for the experience that GPP has been able to give me, and I would like to encourage CPP members to keep working hard! ‘Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears to get the job done.’ – Gillian Anderson.”
Thank you again, Mambwe, for dedicating your time and effort into the CPP program. We wish you the best of luck in your post-graduation journey!Back to Blog
