“ The many opportunities that the SEWA Lead Houston program offers are immense and boundless. Through the program, I was able to meet leaders from every area of Houston’s diverse community – from political leaders, to leaders in the community, to social workers, and pioneering professionals – their experience helped to shape my views about what it means to truly serve the community. Not only did I learn from this experience, but I also gained valuable insight into the many established and upcoming industries which will one day help me in deciding which profession I would like to pursue. The program itself was a fulfilled and exciting experience from which I gained leadership experience and advice through many volunteering and service events, and learned valuable lessons from the shared experiences that the many leaders that we interacted with had to offer. All in all, the SEWA Lead Houston program has helped me realize my potential as a community leader, and has shaped me in becoming a better community leader. “
