There is so much leadership capability within our Pacific Islander community, and especially in young people. This workshop is intended to hear the stories of current PI student leaders who are leading in a variety of ways in our community. We will talk about the mindset of a leader, what are the challenges of leadership, what helps leadership to grow and thrive, and how to use your leadership ability to serve and make an impact in our community.
