Please describe any internship, study abroad, service learning or academic experience?

Of my academic career, one experience sticks out to me in particular, and that would be a trip I went on called Learn to Lead. Learn to lead is comprised of Mentors and Mentees. These pairs of people go on a trip and get to create a bond that not many people get to experience. We partook in strategy games, team-building activities , and ended each night with a campfire. The bonds I was able to create with this people over just 3 days are ones I will always cherish. Learn to Lead is one of the best things Ive ever been a part of.
