Emily Velazquez, SAF Levante Leadership Institute youth member
An issue I faced this year was interacting with people through Zoom. Because of Covid, Zoom is the only option to connect now and I feel like it has pushed me back a little because I like to interact and ask questions in person. Zoom has made it a bit difficult but I slowly began to adjust. An issue I solved this year was not being as shy as I used to. I feel like I am now prepared to stand up and become a leader.
