The Illinois Leadership Seminar is a gathering of the state's brightest leaders for a day of training and self-discovery. The program, led by A'art is extremely selective, only taking 1 student per high school. I was fortunate enough to represent my school in this program where my mind and self conscious were opened up and I was taught to be myself. This program taught me the importance of valuing other's personalities and treating them the way they want to be treated. It was an exciting event that showed me how much more I can grow as a leader.
