It gave me new insight on how we're at the brink of a new age. In school, with no reference to what the future is going to be... how are we going to be prepared for it? I learned more about my position in the world and who I want to surround myself with. I feel more ready for the future now.- Leilani M.
I'm going to grow up and I'm going to change the world and I'm going to lead. I'm going to take initiative. That's what this program's about. It's about learning how to do that and what steps you need to take, because change is going to come. It's inevitable, it's going to happen. And we need leaders to step forward and be ready.- Koryn S.
I liked getting myself outside the box, honestly, because I feel like I'm very like in my head a lot. What we did where we had to brainstorm solutions was super fun. I really enjoyed going back to my dad every five minutes and asking him what he thought. I just like the creativity that it brought out and my new outlook, like I feel like I kind of have a new outlook on the world.- Sasha M.
It was kind of enlightening to see how much school isn't like this. So it's like here you can express all of your opinions and explore what's happening and all that. And then school is just like, OK, here's the information now memorize it, please. They're not teaching us how to think about all these changes that are happening in the world.- Koryn S.
Giant Leaps challenged a part of my brain I don't usually use. It was so fun and so different from school.- Campbell C.
There was a valuable lesson for me that got reignited in Giant Leaps, where it's OK to have different opinions from others. And if you discuss them with other people you gain new input and different sides to a story that you didn't think about before. It's just nice to be able to share your ideas instead of just "ok I’ll go along with that".- Koryn S
I'm pretty terrified of giving presentations and talking in front of people. But I learned so much about the subject that I was confident talking about it. Then discussing it in so many different ways helped me sort of understand my own opinions better. So I felt like if you know what you're talking about and you feel comfortable expressing your opinion on a topic, then it's not so scary. You're going to do fine. So that was a big help.
