Heya! My name is Rolian and I am a Grade 10 student at Unionville High School. Today, I had the pleasure to attend the Illuminate National High School Leadership Conference with over 170 students globally. Here is my blog which strives to highlight what I learned about collaboration, management, and executive thinking.
"A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way." - John C. Maxwell
My key takeaways from the opening keynote was that time is money. When we did the quiz about investing $1000 in Apple in 2010, I was shocked to find out that that value would increase into $15000 as time passed by. I learned that long term investing is much more effective than short term investing today.
If I were to create a business and I only had $5 in my pocket, I think my business would be a clothing company that delivers a box of outfits every month with a sub fee. I'm very passionate about getting my own job after the event. One thing that I would like to share to others is to believe in yourself and everything you do.
