Hello! My name is Diego Romero and I currently attend Arrowhead Park Early College High School. I have been in Evolvement for a little over 1 1/2 years. So, how did I get to attend the Leadership Summit? Well, I saw it as an opportunity that would be great for me to learn and develop more skills like public speaking and social skills. I applied for the Leadership Team thinking I did horrible on my application, but the day I found out I got in, I was ecstatic. And then here I am, attending a summit and learning so much everyday that we are here.
The Evolvement Leadership Team Summit has been very useful in terms of building skills that we will be using for events and meetings that we may do. I personally have learned so much about public speaking that I never knew and I think will help me be better at presenting and talking to people. I have also been working on some social skills which have led me to making lifelong friends.
Being in Evolvement is very important to me because we are doing some pretty big work for being pretty young. The fact that we get to talk to legislators who can change major policies is fascinating. I may not have done much work outside of school, but we in Evolvement as a whole are doing so much more work together.
