Julia Fensel, a student from Jackson Creek Middle School, presented at Civic Leadership Forum this past weekend. Using everyday situations as an example, Julia proves that anyone can become a leader and bring change to their community.
On May 4th, 2018, over 100 civic leaders and student leaders from the Silicon Valley gathered at Ding Ding TV in Santa Clara, CA to interact and inspire each other as current and future leaders of the community. These middle and high schoolers came from Cupertino, Fremont, Palo Alto, San Jose, and Saratoga. The theme “Inspiring the next generation, from receiver to giver”, is a reminder that in order for future leaders to succeed, they have to know how the current generation of leaders think. Using that information, future leaders have a direction and a foundation for where society should head towards.
