Help Alexis Go To Harvard University!

Hello everyone! I am so excited! I have been recommended by my teachers to become a part of the People to People Leadership In Action Program. I have chosen this program instead of the European Tour at this time, because I feel it will help me to prepare to pursue my aspirations of becoming a lawyer.

I will be traveling as a Leadership Ambassador to the Leadership Summit, with kids from around the world to participate in the People to People Leadership in Action program on the campus of the prestigious Harvard University! My trip will take place for 7 days. It is going to be a great opportunity to further develop my leadership qualities, prepare me for college admissions, and help me to become an effective communicator. I am looking forward to this tremendous, chance of a lifetime, experience as I learn what it takes to be a successful young leader in order to make a difference in the world.

The benefits of this trip are absolutely amazing! 80% of the students that go on this adventure are accepted to their first college of choice! I will also earn 55 High School credit hours and 20 service-learning hours, and 3 optional college credits!

Additionally, while on this journey I will: Be inspired by leaders, experts, and guest speakers. Past speakers have included: General Colin Powell, U.S. secretary of state (2[phone redacted]); Condoleezza Rice, U.S. secretary of state (2[phone redacted]); Laura W. Bush, former first lady of the United States; and Sean Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
