Carrem Gay MCRP ’17 was selected as a Leadership Fellow at The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. The Leadership Fellowship is a rotational program that prepares recent graduates to become future leaders at the Port Authority. Her current rotation is in Enterprise Risk Management, and she is working on several projects that relate to data analytics and strategic planning.
She said that “the most interesting part of her rotation is the exposure to executives and directors across the agency, and was thankful for her experience at Bloustein because she is able to utilize the research and critical skills she developed.” As she moves on to other rotations, she is confident she will be able to use and enhance other skill sets.
Carrem’s favorite memory from Bloustein was when she met former Senator (and New York Knick Champion) Bill Bradley. She remembers feeling inspired when he spoke to students in a small group setting about how he spent his career dedicated to being a leader and advocate for social change.
Carrem’s advice to current students? “Be sure to develop your soft skills and don’t be afraid to challenge the status quo!”
