I attended the 2019 Annual PRIMA Conference in Orlando, FL, from June 9th through June 12th as a student scholar. In attending this important professional conference, I had the unique opportunity to further my public risk management education through interactive sessions and workshops, as well as networking with experts in the field. As a result, I was able to learn more about the challenges risk managers face today.

About a month ago, I attended an intensive three-day orientation session for my summer internship. One of our instructors noted that we were essentially “drinking from a firehose,” and I’ve found that I really like that analogy. As a student soon to be graduating, I’ve recently drunk from a lot of firehoses. Multiple internships, jobs, difficult classes – all have provided the overwhelming firehose experience. I anticipated that the PRIMA Annual Conference would be no different; fun, of course, but an absolutely overwhelming three days.

Now more than ever, the world has seen an increase in the number of threats to our schools, colleges and universities. One of the deadliest events in U.S. history occurred in April 2007, where 32 people were murdered on the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. More recently, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida had claimed national attention with the murder of 17 people.

PRIMA’s 2017 Annual Conference in Phoenix, AZ was a lot of fun due to the people I met, the things I learned, and the new experiences I had. My trip began on Sunday, June 4th. Later that day, I attended a Welcome Reception in the Valley of the Sun Ballroom where I had a great time networking and listening to a live band.

As an international student, I am honored to be selected as one of PRIMA’s Student Scholarship recipients. I would like to share some of my experiences and takeaways from PRIMA’s 2017 Annual Conference.

I attended several education sessions at the Annual Conference. All of these sessions were amazing and the speakers gave specific examples and clear explanations that provided me with insight into the public risk management world.
