Alumni Testimonial - Cohort 7

Jasmine Zavala

The Leadership Academy fostered a deeper understanding of my own strengths and allowed me to appreciate the strengths of those around me. I no longer view leadership as a mask we take on and off, but rather a set of skills rooted in authenticity. The Leadership Academy allowed me to stay true to myself while simultaneously pushing me out of my comfort zone. The skills I developed in the Leadership Academy not only made me a better coworkers, but also a better friends, daughter and student. The trust and team building that was developed with our cohort was a rare and rewarding experience. I am thankful for the lifelong friendships that were formed throughout the cohort experience.
