When I graduated from Chapman University in 1997 in their Voluntary Leadership Program, I did well. I was the CEO & Founder of The Epilepsy Connection. A grassroots organization helping those who had epilepsy and their families. I did that for about 7 years and was going for a 501c3 tax status. I bypassed the BS Degree and “did the work” as the instructor said.
I then graduated the top of my class and was chosen to hold the Summit Meeting that year, along with 4 other presenters.
People paid money to hear me speak, but the most awesome thing about the experience was not educating them or answering their many questions.
I told them “a friend of mine had epilepsy” at the beginning of the presentation. At the end of doing the class I told them all:
“By the way, the friend I spoke of was ME!” I will never forget the look of shock on all their faces, and then others had tears in their eyes, and many waited in line to shake my hands saying, “I never would have known!” I smiled and said, “that is what I had in mind. A person who has epilepsy can accomplish anything a person without can.”
