"My major takeaways? That to become a true leader and a changemaker you should open your eyes and senses to learn, to get inspired, to communicate, to appreciate diversity and keep going.

The highlight of the whole program was to get to know people from different countries across the Mediterranean and be out of my comfort zone with different mentalities and cultures. I understood and observed the journey of the great changemakers across history and realized that it has never been a big bang or a magical single change. It has always been a long journey of trials and errors, and of persistence."
