What global challenge(s) are you most interested in and why?
The Education Achievement Gap is the global challenge that I am most interested in because I believe that every person deserves the opportunity to reach their potential. The world is full of so much potential that is left locked up because not all children are afforded a quality education. Our generation has an excellent opportunity to put an end to the inequity in education and provide benefits to society that will still be enjoyed long after we are gone. To me, that would be a legacy worth leaving.
How can students at Auburn University contribute to the Leadership Challenge?
Keep an eye out for the different events being put on around campus. There are numerous organizations at Auburn that allow students to get plugged in and team up with others that are passionate about the same challenge(s). If you feel any interest even in just getting some information about one of the challenges, do it! These are some of the most daunting challenges the world faces today and they cannot be tackled without collaboration and action from people that wish to see a change. Auburn has a chance to be the location where a movement starts, and I would love to see that happen.
