I am a leader because…

I am a leader because I like to see the world through different perspectives and lenses. Being the person to help others find and achieve their goals is very fulfilling, and brings meaning to my life. A leader is not just someone who leads in the front but also those who supports from the back, and those who walks with you through the process. Being able to be/or have been that person for someone is a journey that I wish to lead.
