Review for Illinois Leadership Seminars (ILS), Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended ILS just last month, and being around everybody at the Illinois leadership seminar was like finding my long lost family. I have never felt more accepted than I did when I attended ILS. I was not sure what to expect before attending the seminar. I honestly expected boring speeches from CEO's and people teaching me how to tell others what to do. Needless to say, I was very mistaken. ILS taught me how to be who I am and accept myself, in addition to accepting others. ILS has taught me that nobody is better than anybody else, we are all different and to compare yourself to anybody else is like comparing an apple to an orange. Most importantly, I learned that to be a great leader, I must accept all of the other oranges and grapes and pears around me and cooperate to make a successful fruit salad :) Lastly, I would like to say thank you to all of the amazing people that make ILS happen, I would not be who I am if I had not had the honor of attending.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would expand ILS so that more great leaders could have the same experience I had.
