I feel really pumped. Once I head back to my community I will be sharing with my peers and my friends what I have learnt based on the experiences of other young leaders from different states in Australia. We had some very informative sessions and we have learnt lots, especially new ways to explore our leadership in our communities and how we can come up with ideas and new approaches, how we can get projects done and what resources are available to us to help us through that process. I’d recommend this to other young people who are eager to get out there and make a change in their community.
