LASO'S 5th Annual Latino Leadership Conference
I Am Beyond, Redefining a Leader
With the raging current events on policy changes in the United States we found it essential to discuss the hot topics of community engagement, human rights and freedom of speech. As the Latin American Student Organization on campus in Montclair State University we wanted to recollect the idea of what it means to be a Leader. Does an individual need to have an elite position amongst the eye of the public to be a leader? Or , Does a Leader need to appeal to societal beliefs? When we think about a leader we normally think of someone in a suit, who speaks very well, who is trained to appeal to the public. On the contrary, a leader can be akin to you, me and the person aside of you. We want to emphasize that a Leader is more than achieving an American Dream but paying it forward to others, exposing them to ideology that reflect human rights and decency or philosophies that come from not just education but life experiences.
