Why did you join the Rise Up Leadership Council?

I am impressed and energized by the work Rise Up does to empower leaders around the world to increase their collective impact. I am excited to learn from the Rise Up Leaders and the other members on the Leadership Council.

What is your favorite way to contribute to the Leadership Council?

I’m new to the Leadership Council, so I am excited to learn about opportunities for contribution.

What has been your favorite Leadership Council experience?

My experience has been limited so far but the Youth Champions Initiative and Incubator panel facilitated by Denise and with youth leaders from India, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Louisiana, and Mississippi was fantastic.  The leaders were enthusiastic, eloquent, and impressive!
