Hello everyone!! I am incredibly honored and proud to inform you that I am the new Hugh O'Brien Youth (HOBY) Ambassador for my high school! I will be attending the HOBY State Leadership Seminar at California Lutheran University this summer. There I will learn the most essential leadership skills that I will use to enhance and inspire my community, country, and world. I am extremely grateful to have been one of the few students nominated out of approximately 600 sophomore students from my school to apply for the HOBY State Leadership Seminar. I was required to submit an essay on "What it Means to Be a Leader" and YES mine was selected with a unanimous decision!! But, there's even a bigger conference that I can attend along with the state seminar, which is why I am asking for your help. The World Leadership Conference in Chicago, Illinois is only open to sophomores, so this is the ONLY time I would EVER be eligible to attend this AMAZING once-in-a-lifetime event. I would truly appreciate any contributions that you can make towards my goal. PLEASE help a future young leader fulfill one of her dreams!
