Just Because You’re A Big Name Doesn’t Mean You’re Important

    At the Future Cities Competition, we had VIP judges for the final round. It's traditional to get some big names thrown into the mix. Before these judges arrived, I was told to make sure the room is perfectly clean, furnished with food and waters on each one of the desks. This comment made me a little upset. I realize that they are volunteering their time to help the future leaders of tomorrow, but they expect something in return. These people are powerful and extremely intelligent in their field. They work hard on a daily basis, but they're still just like everyone of us. So even if they do have a big name, does it make it okay for them to be treated differently?
