What was the first thing you led?
I have always felt like a leader in both my personal and professional life. I like taking initiative in planning and organizing, whether it’s a school project or a trip.

It allows for relationship building and maximizes talent and opportunities. It is also a great way to gain insights into different industries and businesses.
