Power of One
The Mockingbird Society has accomplished a lot and it couldn’t have been possible without youth voice! Within the last ten years of summits, we’ve worked with legislators to pass more than 25 bills into laws. In celebration of Mockingbird’s 10th annual Foster Youth and Alumni Leadership Summit, I would like to recognize how this event has shaped me into the leader that I am today. It taught me the value of community engagement, allowed me to see the growth of the event and those involved, and it empowered me to see my role as an advocate in this year’s summit.
I have attended every summit for the past five years, and realized that I’ve grown tremendously as a leader because of it.
