Bio

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader”—John Quincy Adams

Major: Design and International Relations
Year: Fourth
Hometown: Ecuador

Before CLL I thought leadership was having a title or something you were born with. However, I am now highly aware of the importance of encouraging others, recognizing others’ strengths, and motivating others to succeed, because if they do, so do you; and that makes you a leader.

The CLL will help you identify your strengths and find what form of leadership fits you best. Before joining CLL I did not know that some of my strengths were “individualization” or “futuristic”. Understanding those traits will help me optimally obtain my goals as well as be a leader in my everyday life.
