1. What made you want to become a leader in the PALS community?
Hi PALS people! I had the privilege of directing PALS New York City this summer. I cannot even begin to describe the experience and what it has taught me. I have been involved in PALS for 4 consecutive summers and during that time have worked up the leadership track. I wanted to become a leader in the PALS community to help create the Camps that have changed the lives of so many, promoted acceptance and inclusion, and made the world a better place. I will always aspire to learn and grow as a leader and continue creating programs that have such a positive impact on the world we live in.
2. How have you grown as a person through your PALS leadership experience?
I have grown tremendously through my PALS leadership experience. I have learned immensely about myself, how to be an estimable leader, and how to be a stronger advocate. Being a leader has taught me to celebrate all successes; big and small, and to not sweat the things you cannot change.
3. What legacy do you want to leave with PALS as a leader?
As a PALS leader, I hope to leave the legacy of a hardworking and patient role model. At the end of the day, all you can do is try your best, and make the most of everything with contagious energy.
All the PALS Love,
