Conversations with Young Leaders

In The Point studio: Katrina Fryklund, Dylan Fernandes, and Christina Bologna

It used to be that age was an advantage when seeking a leadership position: it meant more experience, resources and money. But that’s changing. Individuals in their 20’s and 30’s are seen as more in the in tune with the dynamic, entrepreneurial and digital world, and they are stepping up to take the reins. We talk with young leaders from the public, private, and non profit sectors about their motivations, challenges and goals for themselves and our world.

Guests on the program are as follows: Massachusetts State Representative Dylan Fernandes, who serves all of Dukes and Nantucket counties and portions of Barnstable County. Katrina Fryklund, Director of National Outreach Latham Centers Inc. Christina Bologna, Marketing Coordinator for the Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. Jasiel Correia, Mayor of Fall River. Benten Niggel, senior at Nauset High School and member of the Eastham Strategic Planning Committee.
