What drew you to the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program?
I was drawn to the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program because its four pillars (purposeful leadership, intellectual curiosity, strength of character, and collaborative spirit) align closely with my own values and who I strive to be. The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program acts on the four components with meaningful opportunities including Coffees for Ten and Dinners for Six, a three-part summer model (community, exploration, and launch), NOLS expeditions, program discussions, and more. I was also intrigued by the program’s emphasis on rethinking power structures and ethics underlying leadership, forming community connections, and taking bold action empowered by two world-class educational institutions.
