Since my childhood, I have been associated with volunteering ventures and contributing to the social good. And I always assumed it to be the best way to do until I participated in the voices of civic champions course that opened a thought process of realizing the connection between leadership ability and civic engagement. The five days course brought to me numerous ideas and innovation in planning even one single act of better involvement to the civic participation.
My journey from a participant to another leadership program to become a civic champion has been an unforgettable process of exploration. The concepts of cultural diversity, storytelling and facing resilience were a new world door for me. The lifelong connections of civic champions that we have been able to create helped me and my fellows to bring a change with small steps of self realization and understanding of the world around us.
