Which value of the program resonates with you most and why? 

The value of the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program that resonates most with me is Strength of Character. Character plays a significant role in leadership as leaders must be courageous, confident, and honest to create positive change. I feel that the strength of the Robertson community is found in the character of its Scholars. Robertson Scholars are accepting of others and appreciate different viewpoints, creating a welcoming community I am excited to become a lifelong part of. As someone interested in the intersection of character and leadership, I am looking forward to my growth throughout the Program.
