Wow! What an experience of a lifetime. I just finished my junior year, but it was my first year at SMU. We spent six days learning about the core values of leadership, but I felt like I walked away from this conference knowing more about myself and the people around me.
This experience helped me to really dig deep into the things that I value and things that I wish to change about myself. We had sessions where we met as a whole group (50+ students) and then we had sessions where we broke away into family clusters. The family clusters gave us the opportunity to share a little more about ourselves and our lives in a more intimate setting. I learned so much from the people in my family cluster; it was incredible.
We’ve only been back from LeaderShape for just over two weeks, and we’ve already had a get-together with those of us who are in the DFW area for the summer. We all meet for bowling this past Friday in Addison.
The people I met at LeaderShape gave such a lasting impression of inspiration to achieve what I want to. It’s nice to realize that I was surrounded by people who possess a true passion for making a difference in the world and in the future.
I would highly encourage anyone who is contemplating going to go for it! I learned/took away more than I could have ever imagined. It was such a wonderful opportunity.
