My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wisconsin Leadership Seminars Inc, Milwaukee, WI, USA
Going into WILS my sophomore year of high school, I had no idea what to expect. I half expected a weekend full of hokey workshops, boring speakers, and awkward activities designed to teach you how to be a leader. Instead, I found inspiration, passion, self-confidence, and a second family. At WILS, you are not taught "rules on being a good leader". Instead, you are taught how to use your own personal strengths and weaknesses in order to lead not only peers, but lead your own life. The skills that I took away from WILS, and the people I have met through WILS, have impacted my entire life. My college roommate that I have had for the past 3 years, and will have for my final year of undergrad, is actually girl I met at WILS! I am now in my junior year of college pursuing a Biology-biomedical sciences concentration and Spanish double major. I am currently studying for the MCAT and preparing to apply to medical schools this summer to pursue a career in Obstetrics or Neonatology. I am certain I wouldn't be where I am now without WILS.
