I had no idea what to expect when going into class when President Ross came to speak. I’ve heard so many good, amazing things about him. I was very intrigued to see what kind of approach he was going to take with his presentation and how he was going to impact my leadership. He came into our class and was so relaxed and truly cared about what we stand for as an Leadership Advancement Scholar (LAS) and the Leadership Institute (LI). He spoke about his past and how he got to where he is today. How he went from poverty to president. He spoke about what he stood for and believed in. He talked about himself, but not for long he truly wanted to hear from us. He wanted to honestly answer our questions. Everything from what would the best Christmas present be, which he said world peace, to what do you believe is the best leadership quality to have is and he said to be passionate. President Ross’s presentation inspired me that no matter how low you’re at to always strive for your dreams. Take full advantage of everything that comes you’re way.
