I am immensely grateful to have been privileged enough to attend the University Scholars Leadership Symposium (USLS) as a delegate two times over the last three years, in 2017 and now in 2019. By attending, I have been given the opportunity to get the bigger picture of what leadership in the 21st century requires. At USLS we have been reminded that we are the people who need to take charge and transform the globe by positively developing societies and impacting people’s lives.
My overall experience is that the USLS is the best avenue for young leaders to be inspired to follow their dreams in life to transform societies as desired. USLS reminds us that it is not only important to dream big because, in order to achieve greatness, we need to start and develop slowly..
My deepest gratitude to Humanitarian Affairs for creating this platform that has enabled young leaders to create friendships, foster partnerships, and inspire one another as we soldier on towards improving people’s lives across the globe
A key moment for me was the session discussing the struggles of refugees. There was a performance enacted by refugee children that depicted innocent children being killed by the military. It was heart wrenching to imagine those specific children on stage being in that kind of situation. I though, How could I sit idly by while such innocent lives continue to be marred by such evil? Both my husband (who was also a USLS delegate) and I felt motivated to do something to help these refugee children, in our own little way.
