I was selected to be one of 65 Auburn University student leaders who traveled to Berry College in Rome, Georgia, for a six-day program that challenged us to lead with integrity while working toward a personal vision grounded in our deepest values. During the retreat, I was a member of a small group that discussed our personal beliefs and passions, how we perceive the world in which we live and how we want to contribute to the creation of a just, caring and thriving world. At the institute we were taught to lead with integrity while having a healthy disregard for the impossible.
