I got the opportunity to meet awesome people from around the world that are making change for the better. I would never have gotten to meet them if it wasn't for this program. Along with that, the academy taught me skills that no class in school has taught me and more!

My son has come away inspired each day from the amazing speakers and their journeys. He is transforming in positive ways every day that we could have never envisioned.
