Khephra's Story

My passion is leadership.

As a kid in school, whenever I would have group work my partners would look to me for direction or guidance. Even now in high school, being a leader is really important for me. For example, in school right now I am the class representative and this is my first year being at Lighthouse Community Charter School (starting as tenth-grader). A few months ago, I joined Student Leadership Group because I know that leadership is a strong interest of mine. I was also really interested in gaining new knowledge of being a leader and growing as a person.

I feel that attending National Teen Leadership Program will help me explore my passion because to me, being a leader is being the first to say "I can change this" and actually doing everything in your power to make those changes possible. I believe that stepping out of my comfort zone and trying a new experience like National Teen Leadership Program can help me to achieve what I see leadership to be.

A Note from Mr. Horowitz, Khephra's Teacher

"Khephra is a wonderful person and excellent student. She works very hard in school and is a positive member of the community. She recently won an award for showing leadership skills and has a great relationship with both her peers and teachers.

Khephra recently joined our high school and has done a wonderful job in a short amount of time of building relationships and showing determination in everything she does. It is clear that she is also very determined to be a part of the National Teen Leadership Program this summer."

My Amazing National Teen Leadership Experience

This summer I went to the National Teen Leadership Program. Thanks to Wishbone, Mr. Horowitz, and friends and family I was able to have an amazing and inspirational experience at California State University, Sacramento. I got a little peek of what it would be like to be away from home and live in a college dorm and be responsible for being on time for activities and events as if they were actual college classes. I got to meet students from all over including California, Utah, and even China! The various workshops, team building activities, and guest speakers changed my perspective and helped me become a better leader. I can't wait to bring what I learned back to the school.
