Call to Action
Consider these questions as you listen to stories from Joseph and Marco.
Here’s a powerful statement from Marco: “Nothing is going to change unless I figure out a way to leverage my voice and my experience to move the needle in whatever way that I can.” To truly understand yourself, you need to take some time for thoughtful introspection and reflection of who you want to be as a leader.
- How can I play a part in increasing access to opportunity?
- What is my own leadership style and how can I make a difference in my community?
- What direction is my life currently going? Am I happy with it? If not, what needs to change so that I can better reach my goals?
And finally, you cannot successfully lead alone! Meet others outside of your immediate community – get involved in CYL.
