In the spring of 2009 I found out about a nonprofit organization that hosted local leadership conferences throughout the school year and I heard about one coming up called the California Association of Student Council's Summer Camp. I seemed interested at first because of my friend's comments about his attendance the year before. So I signed up for a scholarship in order to attend the conference and I got it. After going through Summer Camp at UC Santa Barbara through Track 1, I found out that I had the potential to do more than just get good grades, so I decided to join the Region Cabinet. After joining this organization I learned to come out of my shell by stepping outside of my comfort zone and helping others realize the potential they have. Today I continue to stay involved within the organization by attending this past Summer Conference(Track 2), the Staff Development Program, and soon in November by attending the Student Advisory Board on Education which is one of the only opportunities where students get the opportunities to present proposals to the State Board of Education. Last but not least I would like to thank all of those who participate in this organization for keeping the statewide movement going by empowering youth to take action. - JMH
