Favorite Legacy Youth Lesson: Communicating with Confidence. I consider this my favorite lesson
because throughout my childhood, I felt shy when it came to speaking to people and being the center
of attention. Communicating with Confidence was the perfect lesson to really pull me out of my shell
and help me have enough confidence to socialize with others and be myself around themCommunicating with Confidence. I consider this my favorite lesson

Proudest Accomplishment to Date: Getting into college and how I have opened up to my family and
friends using the communication skills I learned from Legacy Leaders.

Future Goals: I like to help people and make a difference in people’s lives, and one of my goals is to
become a successful police officer. I would also like to own a house, have a family of my own, travel,
and be someone who people will always remember. 

“Legacy Leaders helped me
believe that if I set my mind and
heart on what I desire, anything
can be accomplished and I will
always succeed in life.”
