Over the last few months I have been questioning the value of the Hardie Fellowship that I did. I spent 12 months away from home, my partner, friends and my dogs. I had the awesome opportunity to make new friends and catch up with friends that I had developed via Twitter. These opportunities, along with travel, immersing in a culture and having time to think, read, learn, discuss and share are invaluable. I guess I am questioning what other value does the Hardie hold?
