“To be a leader is to initially learn about one another, collaborate, and work together in spite of our differences to achieve a communal goal. Through this collaboration and other activities provided by the program, I have built new friendships and opened up myself to an even larger sense of diversity through sharing ideas and opinions with my teammates on particular topics.”
