“I have always wanted to help people. This has always been my main determination. It is the one thing that gives me a personal sense of accomplishment and my greatest source of faith and enthusiasm. An Eisenhower Youth Leader is one who empowers a community through breeding an environment in which its members can thrive, a community with active citizens. That is what I hope to do with my life and the idea of being exposed to the collective experience of established leaders in an international setting is very exciting for me.”
