Focused & Fearless with Grace Powderly
Updated: Mar 8
Grace Powderly is ready to help students and serve others by sharing her college experience. How did she make decisions on which school to attend? And what did she do to make the most out of an opportunity? A fantastic student who once looked at a high school list of clubs, activities, and sports decided to try new things because they looked and sounded like fun. Her decisions led her to a new sport, joining a standout club and an opportunity to travel the world and literally help improve and study global health. Her advice is to get involved and say yes. And her energy and love for life and serving people are contagious and fulfilling. Grace compares the different divisions for athletics, and different sizes of schools and reminds us all, “It’s ok to not know everything yet.” Relatable has a great perspective, heartwarming and she’s just plain fun.
