Last year, I was lucky enough to have been selected to receive the scholarship to attend Leadership Niagara. The experience was unforgettable, the people I got to meet were amazing, and what I took away was a sense of accomplishment. The others in my cohort were from all different backgrounds and businesses, and the collaboration and contacts – well, there will definitely be many lasting relationships. While we learned about branding, networking, and community giving I also learned a lot about myself and what I have accomplished to date and how I can have continued success as well as share that with others.
The community project was a unique opportunity I will never forget. It was a different experience than what I could have had through other volunteer opportunities and has created a lasting relationship with our local YWCA, and one I am tremendously passionate about.
If there is an opportunity for someone to be a part of this – jump in. It was an amazing experience…. And one I wish I could repeat – again and again.
