As part of our 25th anniversary series, we are featuring stories from young leaders who #MakeItHappen in their communities. This story comes to us from REALITY participant Amy Berkhoudt. REALITY is a values-based leadership program that invests in young professionals, empowering them to enact positive social change in their communities.
