"How Technology Helped Me Break Out of My Shell"

Starting high school seemed like a daunting task that I wasn’t sure how to tackle. However, as I’ve grown throughout my four years as a high-school student, which were filled with many obstacles, I’ve been able to become a better-connected leader within my community. Through different opportunities made possible by technological resources, getting through high school didn’t seem like an impossible feat anymore; instead, it became a second home where I grew into the best that I can be. My presentation will aim to provide advice to high-school students about how they can use resources like technology to become leaders that truly aren’t alone.
