Who was the most memorable person from the trip?
What did you learn from the trip that you can use to help L.E.A.D. carry out its mission to empower an at risk generation to lead and transform their city?
I learned that trips like this are transforming our city. Meaning if youth males continue to do things like this it will set trends and make others want to follow in their path. A positive trend youth males should follow is to get good grades and always be successful. Not only get good grades but stay in school and join programs such as L.E.A.D.
What are the top 3 skills that you have learned since becoming an Ambassador that helped you represent L.E.A.D. with excellence on this trip?
Listening skills, being respectful, and learning how to always pay
attention and stay focused were the top 3 skills that I have learned and used in L.A. These skills are important to have because if we didn’t have them, we wouldn’t have been as successful as we were. Since we were all paying attention, the director didn’t have to keep repeating himself and being respectful is always important to have. If you’re not respectful then nobody would want you around them.
What 3 core values did you have to use each day while on the trip?
Excellence, teamwork, Stewardship are the 3 core values that I used everyday in L.A. I had to use these core values everyday to make myself a better person in life. If you live by these core values then its a big chance you’ll complete any future goals you have set for yourself.
Describe the trip in 3 words?
Exposure, excellent, opportunity.
What opportunities do you now have after being out there?
