Letter from the President

It's not easy being the younger sibling

Dear Friend,

Watching my two boys interact has given me new appreciation for the challenges of being a younger sibling. I didn’t believe it growing up as the eldest in my family even though my sister regularly pointed it out. I always felt like she got special treatment. For example, the very first time I was allowed to stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve, she did, too. At the time, I felt it was so unjust because when I was her age, I had to go to bed early.
