Meet other local alumni from the Global Young Leaders Conference.

I learnt about the Global Young Leaders Conference during 11th grade, I was asked to participate. The concept of the entire program instantly caught my interest and I wanted to take part during the summer of 2007 as it would definitely help build leadership skills as I am still a budding entrepreneur. However, I was unable to do so due to several reasons. A few of my classmates attended that year’s session and loved it!
