If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
– John Quincy Adams
I believe that the current global trend of student events that is spanning across the world (be it in economic, social, environmental and political dimensions) is calling for more young people to become future leaders.
The world is in need of leaders that will think and act differently; young and potential leaders that will take the bull by the horn and act swiftly to the rising modern era of different challenges facing the world. As can be observed, the world has rapidly emerged to be a more dynamic system that requires continual need for more credible leaders in different capacities and human endeavors.
No doubt, the world needs young people like you and me now that breathe with compassion and love for humanity, people who still believe in the dignity and respect for human life and that of the mother earth, people of great responsibility and sacrificial attitudes that will always live past their personal concerns and needs to that of others, and people with balanced and developed perspectives of life, emotionally stable with great level of integrity, honor and self respect.
I foresee and crave for the youth of this modern, yet trying time in human history, to shun vices and other dıscredıtıng behaviors, and focus on bringing out the best in themselves especially the leadership tendencies and potentials, and to sincerely aspire to become an agent of change and positive contributors to humanity.
I strongly believe that the time has come for young people of this generation across the globe to pull and invest their youthful zeal and energy in the right channel: LEADERSHIP ASPIRATIONS
Then comes the big question, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
