Participating and serving the community as a circle lead is an eye-opening and refreshing experience for me. I learned to stretch myself to reach and surpass my full potential as a leader and a communicator. During this opportunity, I and my co-lead worked together, and we built the team we needed to execute the herculean task of building a community from the ground up in our school.
Ingressive For Good as a network is packed with opportunities targeted at the growth of its members and other beneficiaries alike. I have had the opportunity to network with new people with similar goals, share ideas, and plan events & meetings together. Through a collaboration series with three other circles, I was able to work as a unit with others to drive a larger force. The events were a success, and I gained a lot from them.
The first-hand access to programs and events from the headquarters has also given me a considerable boost in my career. The scholarship to learn tech skills with the Zuri program was a great one in particular at making me accountable and bringing me closer to my goals. Balancing school life with community leadership is a challenge I am glad I picked up. I learned how to plan better and maximize my time for maximal productivity even while giving myself to community service. It is a great honor to serve, grow and share and connect with great minds.
